I have just switched from shared hosting to a centOS VPS. I'm using my VPS to run a few blogs and Joomla websites. Whenever I try to install Joomla / Wordpress, I always have permission issues. There are always some files that can't be written to. As a solution, I have to chmod everything to 777 and then 755. Is there any way to automatically set correct permissions for these folders?
I never had any permission issues while using shared hosting. Any idea how they configure their servers?
Thanks in advance
