public_html chmod to 750
I am trying to add just a little more security to my site and I read on some blogs that I should change my public_html from 755 to 750.
Can someone please explain this to me.
I understand that if I set it to 750 I will be blocking everyone from accessing my site. How can this possibly work. I did more research and someone told me that the folder public_html should be owned by me and the group “nobody” and then when I set the folder to 750 everything would be fine.
Is the nobody group default? is there anything I have to do to the group itself?
Does anyone actually know or have does this to their site?
Thanks for your help
