proper files/folders permissions for wordpress on frihost





evilryu530
can someone enlighten me on the proper files/folders permissions for wordpress on frihost?

I've uploaded and installed wordpress. I log into the wpadmin and everytime i want to add/uninstall a plugin, it asks me for ftp access within the wpadmin. so im thinking it's a permissions issue.

which folders/files need to set what permissions?

thank you.

i've checked through direct admin, folders are 755 and files are 644,

but still getting the ftp asking issue everytime.

this solved it

Can put these in wp-config.php

define('FTP_USER', 'username');
define('FTP_PASS', 'password');
define('FTP_HOST', 'ftp.example.org:21');

okay so if anyone is having issues with wordpress permissions on frihost this did the trick,

goto directadmin, goto your wp-contents folder and change permissions from 755 to 777. do all of your upgrading, installs, etc... and it should work without permissions issues.

when you're done, change it back to 755.

hope this helps anyone. it sure helped me.
