I don't want to lock down everything, since I need the built FTP uploader and caching programs to work correctly on the WordPress sites.
This is what I have found:
Folders - 755
Files - 644
wp-config.php - 444
I'm a little rusty on the SSH commands. Will the following accomplish the files and folders permissions?
sudo chmod -d 755 /var/www/directory
sudo chmod -f 644 /var/www/directory
They do not look right to me.
