Files, except for the two configure.php files, should have permissions of 644 (no higher than that).


Permissions for the two configure.php files should be either 644, 444 or 400, but which of these is correct for you depends upon your hosting. Try 644, then 444, then 400 until you get rid of the security warning.


Folders should have permissions no higher than 755. 777 is "Full Permissions" and a security risk (Read, Write and Execute for everrybody). Having said that some hosts do require you use 777 for the 'images' folder, but not the image files inside it.
