W3 Total Cache
[resolved] Is it safe to leave files CHMOD 777 (4 posts)

    Hi,

    I'm about to move to a new host, & W3TC is giving me red warning in WP admin stating I need to CHMOD 777:

    /wp-content/w3-total-cache-config.php
    /wp-content/w3tc/pgcache/.htaccess
    /.htaccess

    It seems like I need to leave these files with CHMOD 777. Is this safe? Or am I supposed to make the changes, save my W3TC settings & change permissions back to 644?

    Thanks,
    -David

    You don't want anything at 777 especially config files and .htaccess

    .htaccess should be set to 644 and others can be at 755

    Thanks,

    I figured. It turned out to be some other permissions issue, so I did not need to chmod to 777. I kept it at 644 & 755.
