Re: Important Security Question

What happens if you set it to 775?
I suspect that your website is setup to use your own username to create files/directories when you use FTP, but when using a script, that script is executed under a different username. This is why 777 works. 775 might work. I’d wonder how safe 777/775 is in a shared hosting environment…

Re: Important Security Question

Ah, its not safe at all, I understand that :)

775 does not work neither.

But, what about if I set 755 even if txp doesnt like it? My site seems to work fine, whole day now.

Re: Important Security Question

If you don’t mind using FTP to upload files/images, sure, that’s not a problem for TXP… just a bit more work for you.

Re: Important Security Question

It’s used for uploading files/images… but since you’re not using that it’s not a problem.
