Is setting CHMOD to 777 Dangerous?

2 comentarios



I'm trying to install Prestashop and spoke with the technical support representative from BlueHost regarding questions I had on setting the file permissions to 777 as stated in the following installation instructions

The tech support rep gave me the analogy of leaving the keys in my car with the doors unlocked on a busy street in a bad part of town. In other words. someone will take advantage of this unrestricted permission setting.

Can you help me understand why I need to have permissions set to 777?



Please help


I didn't find the right solution from the Internet

Yes, it is dangerous to set chmod 777 permissions. You should only use chmod 755 for directories and chmod 644 for files. You should only use chmod 777 on older servers where chmod 755 causes write problems, though it would be better to go to a different host that does work with chmod 755 in that situation.
