Web server File Permissions


Well-known member
Right, I'm needing a little help, I'm in the process of changing web hosts, and as part of the change I'm going to be running Php as a Apache module, I've always run my sites under FastCGI as the ftp user, so I've never really had to worry about file permissions etc.

Now I've read the help files and know which folders I need to give write permission to, but my questions is, as my site is already running and there are already file attachements etc, when I'm given the folders the write permissions do I need to do this recursively to all files and folders, or just folders or just files?
