I've been toying around with web based file managers, for easy uploading on a sub-domain that will be put to use soon.
The problem is, I can't use it's built in functions to write files, (and I guess upload too) unless the root folder I'm working in is CHMOD 777. (in this case, the subdomain root folder)
Is this a security risk at all? As if it is, I'd definitely want to know so I can find another alternative.
