WP-Members Download Protect version 1.5.1 has been released. This is essentially a bug fix update for a bug that (seemingly) only affects initial installs (new installations only), and then only if the current file system did not have a /wp-content/uploads/wpmembers/ folder created by the core plugin.
Core WP-Members creates the above folder if any file/image upload field is included in the plugin’s custom fields. When Download Protect is installed, it creates a default directory to store protected uploads, then sets directory permissions to protect the directory.
In version 1.5.0 and earlier, if initial directory /wpmembers/ did not exist, the install would fail, requiring it to be created manually.
This update (1.5.1) corrects that problem.
This update also includes a custom filter hook in the install process to allow for different directory permissions to be set if for some reason you are unable to use the default chmod 750 permissions.
Do you need to update?
This is a fix for new installations. If you already have the plugin installed and running without error, you do not need to update (although you can).
