Directory and file rights

Post by richard@wittie » Fri Sep 14, 2012 7:39 am

Hi, when installing or upgrading Joomla through Installatron de directory rights are set to 777 and file rights are set to 666.
Is is possible to set directory rights to 755 en file right to 644 automatically?
Now, after upgraden a Joomla install through Installatron I have to set rights back as I want them manually.
I hope this is possible.

Regards, Richard

Installatron should use the correct permissions for your server's configuration.

If PHP executes as your account, then files should be 755/644, but if PHP executes as a shared account, then 777/666 is required by Joomla.

If you'd like to use different permissions or if the permissions set by Installatron aren't correct, you can modify the permissions using your control panel file manager or FTP program.

Thank you,
