bndiagnostic failure reason: the tool is great, but I couldn’t find feedback related to this
So… I’ve encountered an issue when updating plugins on a Lightsail WP instance with Bitnami, it kept giving this error:
“The update cannot be installed because we will be unable to copy some files. This is usually due to inconsistent file permissions.”
I found the answer in the following topics to this issue and solved it by setting 775 to wp-content folders:
My question now is - isn’t it a security risk setting the folders permission in wp-content to 775?
My website has been under attack for some time now, I’ve taken several security measures so I wanted to make sure setting 775 permission to make the plugin updates work doesn’t pose such a big security risk.
I know that by setting 775 basically anyone accessing a malicious script on my website will be able to write in those folders.
Can you please help?
