Actually if I do 756 I get "Forbidden", if I try 757 I get the same problem, no mkdir.
777 works to make the directory and thumbs, but then I have a directory/files I can't delete (thumb/*) as it was created by another user. But isn't the script supposed to run as my user since it's php cgi?
See I'm confused about 3 ways here, all intertwined. To make matters worse I run the very same script on my own site and 755 works fine. There however I do not have php-cgi enabled globally on the domain, but I use the file extension pcgi instead, should be the same thing though shouldn't it?
I'm deeply confused
