3.0.4 vs 3.0.5 Defaul Permission Changes?

Post by Seraphic » Wed Jul 29, 2009 10:59 pm

I am building a new 3.0.5 forum and using two of my old 3.0.4 forums as a reference.
One thing I noticed is that in the 3.0.4 forums all the folder permissions are set to 755.
But in the 3.0.5 forum, the cache, files, and store folders are set to 700 by default (others remain 755).

Is this an intended change or did something happen during my install?
Should I change those three folders from 700 back to 755?

The issue I found is that my htaccess ErrorDocument redirecting returns errors with those set to 700.

Thanks

Code: Select all

All directories - 755
    * There are some exceptions when it comes to directory permissions,
          o The files directory - 777
          o The cache directory - 777
          o The store directory - 777
Based on that article, those three folders shoudln't even be 755, they should be 777.

Seeing as that has all the correct values, I'll double check all the files.

The file permissions were set by you before/during the original install. and do not change on their own.

In the 3.0.5 forum, I know for a fact I did not edit any of the permissions.
