I am trying to make TimThumb work on my domain. After having tried and tested every step on this troubleshooting guide, it finally came down to folder permissions. The thumbnail cache is owned by my
accountname, while the processes trying to access the folder (i.e. WordPress) are
nobody. The solution suggested by the author of the linked post is to
chown the folder to nobody.
What are the implications of this? Will it affect how WordPress works or my FTP?
