Permissions problems? (2 posts)

    Hi!
    This is a nifty plugin! But I have a question about the permissions.

    Secure reports that my wp-admin, wp-content, wp-includes, etc. have a permission of 755 and that it should be tightened to 750. When I do that, the front end of the site is fine, but the backend is trashed!
    Depending on the particular folder I get a 403 error, or the theme doesn't work, etc.

    Why is the plugin asking me to do something that breaks my site's backend?

    750 must be a typo and should be 705 for folders. 604 for files. Of course these permissions only work on a CGI server type. DSO server type: 755 folder, 644 file.
