  • I need to know what permissions I need to set for all files and directories. I know I have to set wordpress directory at 766, what about the rest?

  • WordPress is secure out of the box. You don’t have to change permissions for any files, unless your server/FTP client changes the permissions for all files uploaded by default.

    yeah i need to change them because I keep getting 403 errors and such.

    In my blog, all folders are 755 and all the files 644. Hope that helps.
    If you uploaded using an FTP client, you probably can instruct your client to not change permissions when uploading.

    well, this is just for installation puproses. It instructed me to make the wordpress dir 766 :-\

    i put them all at 777 just ot install it, workjs fine….
    another question is when i run the install it asks me where to put the index file, and it’s automatically set at but i want it at and when i do that, i get some errors saying that no such file exists, the file being “/home/syrophen/public_html/index.php”

    It is suggested that you have all your WordPress files in the same directory that you want the index.php [age to be in. If you want to have your blog at the root directory you mentioned, move all your WordPress files to that directory.

    ah, ok, i am up and running…..
    now all i need to do is figure out how to change things around, like “my weblog” and stuff. What file do i go to, to change those things?

    Use the options doc I wrote if you like.
