You should be able to correct this by ensuring the proper ownership of the files rather than setting them to 777. The Apache process on Ubuntu runs as the user www-data. Assuming your web files are in the default directory of /var/www/html, the following command will set the ownership properly and should allow files to be written without the 777 permissions on them.

sudo chown -Rf www-data:www-data /var/www/html
