FatCat Servers File and Folder Permissions

FatCat Servers utilizes suPHP an Apache module that runs PHP scripts as the owner of the file instead of 'Nobody'. This articles main focus is about the permissions , so we wont get into suPHP

No Folders or Files should ever be higher than 755. If you run a folder at 777 it can leav you vunerable to rootkits or mailware installed to your website

Reccommended Settings

IMPORTANT: The public_html file is set at 750 and should never be changed, if you delete this folder then recreate it it will not work, you will have to turn in a support ticket for us to fix it

All folders inside the public_html set to 755 , even if the script calls for 777 , it will work at 755 - that is what suPHP does

Files , even .cgi set to 644

for extra security .php files will run at 600

I even set my php configuration files to 400 , if you do this they will have to be changed back to 600 or 644 if you need to edit them

to sum it up

Folders
public_html 750
all other folders 755
Files
All Files 644
php files 400,600,644
