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?
I didn't find the right solution from the Internet
