I am having the same issue on my site, the public_html folder is being changed from 750 to 777 and crashing the site. I have traced this down to having something to do with when a member uploads a photo and only sees a default camera icon in the stream, this is when the error occurs and changes the public_html folder from 750 to 777 causing a 500 error on the site. I hope someone sees these posts and lends a hand to resolve this issue. I am running Joomla 1.7.2 and Jomsocial 2.4.2Krki wrote:Hello
Something in Joomla is causing public_html folder permission to change from 750 into 777.
When this happens Internal Server Error is shown until I change permission back to 750.
My website is hosted on hostgator, VPS (level three) package
After website went live, during last month it happened 10ish times.
I wonder if something similar happened to any of you and how did you tracked the cause of this issue?
So far I created cron task to reset folder back to 750 every 5 minutes so that I dont need to monitor it 24/7 but I would like to sort this out.
- is it possible to track what is changing root folder permission?
- is it possible to lock public_html folder into 750 so that nothing within it cannot change public_html folder permission?
Any help or hint is more than welcome
