I read the codex etc for permissions but don't fully understand who I am in the scheme of things. For instance I am the only one with the password to login to the wp site. I am also the only one with the password to the ftp site. (I guess aside from godaddy)
So when i read the codex and set permissions I see OWNER, GROUP & EVERYONE. I'm not sure I know the difference between owner and group so therefore it makes no sense to me at the moment.
If I set the permissions to 666 I can still edit the files in wp.
Should I stick with 666. What about folders? Should I set them to something different? Do files follow the folder in terms of permission?
Do I have to manually click each file and folder and check it's permission individually?
