    Please, let me know what should I set CHMOD 777 for folders and files during installation. Thank you.

    You should not use 777 for all the files.

    See the recommended file permissions, which should explain the recommended permissions for the files and directories.

    Thank you for your answer. I meant what's the purpose of setting permissions 777 to some files and folders.

    Waiting for your prompt reply.

    You should not be setting 777 anywhere - have you been told to do this ?

    Yes, I was told to do so. Besides I am just curious. Do you know the purpose of setting them?

    Whoever told you is wrong. Very wrong.
    755 for folders
    644 for all files except those you will edit online which should be 666

    OK. I see. Then just answer me the purpose of setting ANY permissions for folders and files, for example, why 755 but not 777. I need to know.

    You could get errors.
    You could leave your site vulnerable.

    Here's an introduction to CHMOD that I made in response to another thread.
