XF 1.4 What are the default permissions?

    I've moved servers and had a lot of issues, I had to reset my permissions for /usr/share/nginx/html so I ran 'chmod -R 000 /usr/share/nginx/html'

    Could anybody tell me how to reset this to what it used to be? I can't find the default permissions I need (excluding 0777 for internal_data and data)

    In general, files and directories should be 0644 and 0755 respectively.

    The /data and /internal_data directories should be 0777 (recursively).

    chmod -R 0644 html (to correct the files & folders inside the html folder)
    chmod 0755 html (set the html folder permissions)
    chmod -R 0777 html/internal_data html/data

    Should work? I've done this and it returns a white page (aka not working).

    Use this for folder

    find /your/path/ -type d -exec chmod -R 755 {} \;
    for file:
    find /your/path/ -type f -exec chmod -R 644 {} \;
    Don't forget to check chown.

    Worked, thank you so much.

    Edit: Unable to post anything, internal_data and data are set to 0777

    Ah yes. I forgot. You need to change internal_data and data to 0777 recursively (again). Sorry :D

    I'm having an Nginx permission issue. I shouldn't have a problem recursively mass changing everything to these permissions, right? No security issues?
