For scripts that require '0777' directory permissions, we do not allow those permission settings on files or folders.
Please set the directory to 0755 instead (drwxr-xr-x). This will enable read-execute, but not write access for group and world.
777 permissions on folders & files is a website security risk, so we do not allow you to have them.
Most hosting companies now use suPHP servers, thus 755 will allow PHP to read, write and execute scripts just like 777 does. Because of this, most scripts work when you use 755.
The 755 is what it is set to & always has been. I've never had problems until today. It isn't all of her images, just some. It appears to be items that were uploaded to that category as the primary gallery, none of them are linked to any other gallery or to the member gallery. I tried to rebuild thumbnails & it started & then this message popped up
