    Hello,

    I just installed a wordpress blog onto my web server.
    Everything has been working great except image uploads.
    I went to upload an image and wordpress told me that a directory could not be made. It then asked me if the parent's directory has the correct permissions. Via FTP, I changed the permissions of the parent directory to 777, which I am not particularly fond of.

    Does anybody know how to avoid this situation? What kind of user (owner, group, other) does wordpress think I am when I upload images via the web front end?

    Some help and clarification here would be much appreciated.

    Thanks.
