Brian's Blog Homepage

I don't know why but in the last few weeks I have seen a growing number of extension developers write code like this.

if (!is_dir($dstdir)) {
chmod($dstdir, 0777);

It is hard enough educating users not to do this without extension developers doing it for them.

There is no need ever to chmod 777 anything!!

Who is Brian?

As a co-founder of Joomla! and OpenSourceMatters Inc I've never been known to be lacking an opinion or being too afraid to express it.

Despite what some people might think I'm a shy and modest man who doesn't like to blow his own trumpet or boast about achievements.
