Configure.php Permissions

Recommended Posts



I changed the permissions for the configure.php files while adding the "Security Pro" add on, and now in the admin screen, when I login to my site as administrator, it says

I am able to write to the configuration file: /home/adiamond/public_html/includes/configure.php. This is a potential security risk - please set the right user permissions on this file.


What should the file permissions for these two files be? Right now, they are 644.

Ok, I now get the message "This is a properly configured installation of osCommerce Online Merchant!" so that's good so far I hope! Note, I had tried changing permissions in Filezilla and for some reason they weren't taking, but using my hosts file manager it seemed to work just fine. Thanks again!
