Joomla! running on Linux environments uses the inbuilt FTP layer to write content such as files to itself without the need to set folder permissions to 777. When using CKEditor for Joomla however we still seem to have to set our images/stories/ folder to 777 so that users can upload images/files without a write error. Does CKEditor for Joomla make use of joomla's FTP Layer if it has been enabled?
Re: CKEditor for Joomla and image upload permissions
in this moment CKEditor for Joomla doesn't use FTP layer from Joomla.
