    Hi there,
    My site is running well but I have to ask Is there a list of folders and filed CMOD settings for XF?
    I had my hosting company move me to a real fast server yet I found some permissions on folders changed.
    So far no errors, but from hunting and pecking have found that should be a certain setting but unsure of all.

    So would like to make sure I do not have security vulnerabilities by having the wrong CMODs on files or folders.
    Thank You

    It depends on your server setup. But usually the directories are 755 and the files are 644. data and internal_data should be writable which is either 755 or 777 depending on your server setup.

    Hi there, that is the issues is I am unsure which folders may have changed. And knowing what settings on the
    server correlate with the folders and files would be guessing at best.

    Probably not worth worrying about unless you are experiencing errors.

    If you have shell access then you can run this command to set permissions recursively if you wish:

    Code:
    chmod -R 755 yourXFdirectory
