File permission scan

The scan

This scan checks the file permissions are properly set on important files and directories of your site.

The fix

SecuPress will modify the chmod when it's not properly set.

What if the fix doesn't work ?

SecuPress may not be able to automatically set your file permissions right. If that's the case, you'll have to do it manually.

Thankfully, there aren't hundreds of files or folders to check the permissions for, and SecuPress provides you with a nice list in the error message.

Access your site via FTP, and correct the chmod for the listed files and folders. It should read 0644 for files and 0755 for folders. If you don't know what 'chmod' is then do nothing.
