Support » Installing WordPress » Write Permissions of Files and Folders in WP

  • Hi I had a few issues with WP and I had to change the Write Permissions of WP. I googled the issue and I got a little confused.

    In laymans terms, what is the issue to change the write permissions – or said another way, what should the folders definitely NOT be for security reasons?

    Thanks

  • All your folders should be 755 and files 644

    thanks –

    I checked the following folders:

    wp-admin
    wp-includes
    wp-content

    they are all 755 so am I good to go?

    My uploads folder within the content folder is 777 – is that not cool?

    thanks again

    Check if you can upload media if it works then change uploads folder 755 see if you problems.
