Support » Fixing WordPress » File Permission problem, only 777 works?

  • Hi there I looked into some past post relating to file permission settings, and concluded that all directories should be set to 755 and all files set to 644 and never 777.

    However the problem for me is when I set my folders and files to the above settings my site breaks down…even if I set all to 755 I cant up load photos, some plugin wont work.

    Everything only seems to work normal if I set everything to 777!
    Can someone please advice me here about it as I feel my site is all exposed but if not then it wont work?

    Thanks everyone
