Really enjoying your book. On page 345 you mention that file uploads entail creating a folder that everyone can write (chmod 777). Wouldn't the best practice be to change the owner to www-data and set chmod 755 (on Linux systems)? Would this pose similar or any security risks? Would you still want to configure the .htaccess file (to restrict the folder to only make mp3s publically viewable for instance)?
