Here goes: In the past I've made upload scripts, where I've used the 'traditional' move_uploaded_file command which included CHMOdding stuff. But recently (for bigger files) I've managed to write a php ftp script (which i personally liked better)
My current assignment requires an image upload script (reasonably small files, under 100Kb), but I'm not sure which is the best way to upload those.
I keep reading about chmodding 777 being a security issue, but opening an ftp transfer for 1 single tiny file would seem overdone imo, also since ftp is not always as smooth going at our host, especially if several people would upload at the same time I assume...
If anyone has any experience / information on the subject I would appreciate some advice. Many thanks in advance
