I've been running Moodle 1.1 for months... worked great.
When I updated to Moodle 1.2 (stable) all the permissions in my moodledata directory were changed and I had to go into each folder and change them to 777.
Any ideas what happened?
I have placed my moodledata directory inside my cgi-bin... could this be a problem?
Newly greated files all seem fine.
