Topic: File Permissions

I have a VPS so I have to administer the server myself and I am stuck on how to be able to use SV manager without changing the permissions to 777 on everything.

I have changed them as instructed in trouble shooting to 775 and 664 but still it doesnt work. 

Does anyone know how to fix this problem.  It doesn't elaborate in the troubleshooting section - it just says to ask the system administrator to change i said that is me.

Any guidance would be greatly appreciated.


Re: File Permissions

Does it work with 0777 permissions?

The argument against using 0777 permissions (as far as I know) is that other users on the same server could possibly gain access to your files. I am by no means an expert on virtual servers but I'd have thought that a VPS would have built-in security so that users on other virtual servers on the same real machine would not be able to crack into yours even if you set everything to 0777.

However, that's only my opinion and as I say, I'm not an expert. Can you find out from the people who sold you the server if there is any objection to using 0777 permissions?

Anybody else with any information on this?
