Since the turn of the month, I'm having an issue uploading images. It was a quick fix as I found that the 2013/11 folder was 0755 (or maybe 0775, can't remember) wheras all other folders in the wp-content/uploads folder were 0777. My question is why has this changed as I've never had this issue before and the site has been running for 3 years? Could this be related somehow to WP 3.7? I'm on 3.7.1 currently. Thanks

Have you asked your host? 0777 is very insecure. They may have changed that. –  s_ha_dum Nov 3 '13 at 15:03
No I haven't - but all the other folders in wp-content/uploads have always been 0777. I'll ask them anyway. –  TomC Nov 3 '13 at 19:34
