Changing files permissions a security issue?

Post by Chacapamac » Wed Feb 20, 2008 4:02 pm

I did have to change manually the permissions in my Joomla folder to be able to access my installation.

Permissions: 755

I wonder if it create some security issues?

No, 755 for directories and 644 for files are standard server settings and should be safe enough.
