I am having horrible problems with Plesk and file permissions. It seems way too restrictive. We have had to resort to using PHP's FTP commands in order to create folders on a website, but even after we create a folder, once we try to place an image in that folder, we are unable to do so. We try to chmod the newly created directory to 777, but are only able to do so when we log in to FTP and not in our PHP code. Has anyone else run into these problems and have a solution for how to ease up the file restrictions? This seems like overkill.
