osC admin security warning question

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

OnThis security warning

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

Permissions show 0644 which seems normal, is that not correct?

 

Thanks

It depends on who owns the file.  Sometimes 644 will work.  Sometimes you need 444. 

If it's your server (not a host), you could chown the file instead of chmod to 444.  But if a shared host, the simplest thing is to just change it to 444 or 400 or whatever. 


Always back up before making changes.

There is no security warning with 444 so guess it's all happy now.

Thanks for the quick reply.
