How to reliably set file/folder permissions?

The Codex notes that wp-config.php can be used to over-ride file permissions by adding: define(‘FS_CHMOD_FILE’, 0644); define(‘FS_CHMOD_DIR’, 0755); Having done this… why then, when using an ftp app to view the permissions of a file, are they shown as different?

I am trying to redirect all non-www to www URLs in my WordPress MultiSite install. I am using a simple .htaccess rule like this: # Redirect non-www to www: RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} !^www\. [NC] RewriteRule ^(.*)$ http://www.%{HTTP_HOST}/$1 [R=301,L] Normally this would work, however WordPress already seems to have a default redirection to non-www URLs. This means […]
