Folder/file permission problem


Recommended Posts

Hi, My problem is that after setting my OScommerce shop correctly and it worked fine, my webhoster did a migration and later I started noticing a red warning everytime one visits my site. The warning was about file permission include/config.php. After visiting the forum and reading that I should change it to 0440 or 0400 I used Filazilla FTP to access the file and change it. But I notice I made I mistake because with Filezilla when correcting the file permission one can choose "recurse into subdirectories" and I choose folder and files. When it finished correcting the file permission then I noticed that my website completely web off. I tried several times to correct the file permissions but noticed that it's been completely messes up and my website is off. Can somebody help me restore the right folder/file permissions for OScommerce.? I will greately appreciate your help.Thanks in advance

Some servers will do this, try 644 instead



Thanks Nic for your fast reply. I just have a question. the file persmission 644 should I apply to all the Oscommerce Folders and the files because I sure all the files and folder permissions has been altered. I therefore need to correct all the Folder/file permissions.

Also look in the on-line documentation knowledge base on this site as it explains the permissions that need to be set on the various files and dorectories.
