Support » Fixing WordPress » Permissions on different servers

  • Hi – Can someone help me understand why on some servers I install WordPress and I don’t have to touch the file permissions, but on other servers I have to?

    Example: recently I moved a site to a second server. All the file permissions are set to 755, as I believe they always are when I install WordPress. But now WP won’t edit .htaccess, and when I installed wp-cache I had to change permissions manually to 777 and then back again. I’m trying to understand why suddenly all this and where this is controlled. Could it be bc the is a VPS?
