Do you 666 or 755?

I have upgraded several blogs to WordPress 2.8. It is pretty easy when you just need to press the Upgrade button from your Dashboard and leave the whole thing to upgrade itself.

However, my webhost is rather strict with security nowadays because I am too obnoxious LOL. So, I can’t upgrade some of my blogs using the easy way.

So, do you 666 or 755 or even worst 777?

If you don’t know the meaning of these numbers, you are probably :

1) A gambler who only see numbers as lucky numbers that can strike the jackpot

2) You are a good Christian and good Christians don’t like 666

3) You probably own your own domains and hostings but clueless about these numbers and deserve to get hack one of these days

    I believe most of my folders are 755. I wonder why a 777 might be required. Maybe ‘document root’ may not be owned by the same user. But internal folders can definitely work with 755.

    Google UNIX/Linux file permission. each file/directory has a combination of rwx, such as

    and so on

    There are three types of permissions (what allowed to do with a file):
    * read access (r)
    * write access (w)
    * execute access (x)

    Permissions are defined for three types of users:
    * the owner of the file
    * the group that the owner belongs to
    * other users
