Default permissions settings: what are they?

Post by Erik84750 » Sat Oct 23, 2021 7:04 am

I inadvertently changed the permission settings in /System/Global Configuration/Permissions

What are the default permissions for each level, or where can I find these default settings?

Thank you for your reply. What I learned is that there is no such thing as "permissions factory reset" :)

Would you know of some J4 permissions tutorial? I searched in vain.

See (again) viewtopic.php?p=3643028#p3643009.

Copy the database tables from a [working] J! 4 website into your broken website: export from one, import into the other. The topic I referred to earlier tells you which two tables you need to copy. Do you understand now? :)

Ah ok; but this assumes I have another J!4 website? Which is not the case, this is my first Joomla experience.

Then create another J! 4 website. It takes about 10 minutes.

Oh, that simple?! I have a host for my domeinname and website, from their portal I downloaded the Joomla application. So I would have to go back and download again?
EDIT: Top! Done and thanks!
