Folder Permissions (2 posts)

    My host just ran a scan due to malware on one of my domains and discovered that all Filebase directories had 777 permissions on them. They auto-changed them all to 755.

    a) Why are they full write permissions? This is a security risk

    b) Will it affect your plugin performance if they've been set to 755?

    Hello Steve,

    folders are automatically chmoded to 777 for compatibility. The plugin did not work properly for some users when chmod was set to 755. Although 755 should be fine for directories.

    You can set custom permissions by adding these 2 lines to wp-config.php:
    define('WPFB_PERM_FILE', 666);
    define('WPFB_PERM_DIR', 755);
