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

You could try Chmod settings of 470 or 677, which cut out access by anything but your script. The security settings are tighter than 777.

Many thanks :)
470 works like a charm, to be honoust I've never really understood the CHmod levels, I'll have a better look at that some time soon.

Hmm, i spoke too soon, 470 sisnt show up the image on the site.
677 works ok though, on a sidenote I read some stuff on CHmod, but i still don't get it :(
