Happy New Year Everyone!

 Couldn't think of a better way to start off the New Year than uploading and activating some 5.0 plugins!  When I reach the upload screen in cPanel with the path of the destination folder (in this case, wp-content/sp-resources/forum-plugins) and browse for the source folder, it gives me an option to set the folder permissions.  The default is 644.  Do I need to modify those permissions at all, or should I just go with the default?  Thanks in advance for the help!

the folder permissions should probably be 0755... and the php files within 0644... but that can vary server and configurations...

Thank you sir!  It looks like I'll have to go with a 3rd party FTP client as the File Manager in cPanel will not support an upload of an entire folder (as near as I can tell).  It looks like my web host supports/recommends/provides config information for Filezilla (taboo, I know), Core FTP and Cyberduck (eliminated right off the bat because I'm a Windows user.  So, Core FTP it is.  I'll keep you posted on how things turn out.  Thanks for the help!

Thanks guys.  It looks like the setup for the FTP client (Cyberduck) is going to take a little more work than I expected.  Install went just fine, but the connection times out on two different machines.  Hopefully a call to my web host will get it resolved.  I'll post an update just as soon as I get things taken care of...

Problem solved (well...mostly)!  Cyberduck for Windows works great.  For some reason (I'm sure it's an issue with my web host), I couldn't establish a secure FTP connection (SFTP). An FTP connection worked just fine.  I was so impatient to upload the plugins, I threw caution to the wind and went with the FTP connection.  All plugins got uploaded without any issues and I even successfully used the automatic upload to update a couple of plugins that had new versions since just yesterday.

Great work guys!  5.0 is top notch!! laugh
