File Permissions Power CMS

I am at the point where I need to allow permissions. Do I allow 777 to the entire public html and then change back or what is best?
I attempted to allow 777 to the directories I guessed would need it and still get the error. Is just certain directories or ?

File Permissions
Files and directories cannot be created. Verify the ../ directory has write permissions on your server.

the directory that Power CMS is uploaded to needs to have full write permissions, if you upload it to the site root, then the site root needs write permissions, if you upload it to a subdirectrlory, then the subdirectory needs the write permissions.

Looks like you have it uploaded at the site root.

I set the permissions to 776 for files and directories.

normally, 755 for folders and 644 for files is sufficient.

I'll need to troubleshoot directly, see the private message section.

For some reason, the server will inly allow the files to be accessed if the permission is set to allow read write for the public, either 767 to 777

it should be able to work with 755 for folders and 644 for files. you should contact the host to determine why you have to give such elevated permissions to run access files and folders on the site, it should not require 777 like it is now.

I have submitted a ticket to the hosting company. Did you do something to make the style sheets and images link back up? The page was not displaying correctly and it is now. Thank You.

yes, i set the permissions for those folders to 767, but it should not need that broad a permissions to be able to work.

755 (Or Owner: Read Write Execute, Group: Read Execute, Public Read Execute) for directories

644 (Or Owner: Read Write, Group Read, Public Read) for files

should work as a general rule for all php sites.
