Folder and File Permissions

For the security of your websites, these should be your default permission settings:
 
Folders:755 (drwxr-xr-x) 
Files: 644 (-rw-r--r--) 
 
Do not use  777 or 666 permissions. It is a security risk.

If you accidentally changed the permissions on your account and your website no longer works please open a support ticket for us to fix the permissions on your account.
