[wikka-community] problem with {{files}}

seems you're right. with 777 permission it works fine. but it does not look good to me to grand this.

to log in to ftp i use the standard ftp user the provider created automaticaly. 

the create-new-folder trick won't work via ftp.

but the trick works in this way:

- downloaded my files from the uploads/AlexRust folder
- deleted the uploads/AlexRust folder
- grand 777 on uploads
- open the wiki page with a {{files}} action
- upload a file -> this caused the creation of a new folder with the right owner
- upload all the other files
- go back to 755 for uploads

hope now all is well ;)

many thanks
