Best Permission settings

  • Hey,

    After I installed my bbpress al the folder and files had all permission set to ‘000’.

    To acces the page I set everything to ‘777’.

    Now, this clearly seems like a bad idea to me. What should be the permission settings for the diffrent files and directories of my bbpress install?

    thnx for help!

    Folders should be 0755, and PHP files and scripts and images can all be 0644. 777 is a bad idea.

    All folders in general should be 755?

    And all files in general should be 644?

    I can only set 3 digits for the permissions with Transmit on a Mac.

    So I am not to sure about the leading zero you have before 0644 and 0755….

    Yes. Ignore the leading zero then. 755 for folders and 644 for regular files. Sorry about that. (Linux thing)

    cool thnx!

    works like a charm!
