Hey, so I was just installing wordpress on a new site. And I noticed that when uploading it to the FTP, all dirs had 777 chmod and all files had 666. I was installing wordpress on another site, but when uploading, the default chmod for dirs was 705 and files 604. I guess it has something to do server settings made by hosting company?
I tried to manually set all the firs and files to proper permisions, but then my site isnt showing up at all, no wp-admin, no login, nothing. And again when I try to change the chmod of any file, all checkboxes are full, and the numeric value input is set to —-. So i guess it has no effect what I put there.
So should I use 777 and 666 permissions? I was trying to change it because I know that these permissions should never be set, only in special cases and temporarily. What should I do?
