At this point the installer will make sure all your directory permissions are correct and prompt you to correct any issues. You will then be asked for your MySQL database issues and various other information the system may need to proceed.

I wanted to check my files to make sure they have the correct permission and was not sure where to get this information at.

The following directories would need to be writable per your server's configuration (typically, this is 777 but may be 755 if you have suPHP or suexec or some other odd configuration), the rest can be normal:

  • applications
  • datastore
  • plugins
  • uploads and all sub-directories of uploads

Of course, your installation may have different custom attachment directories which may also require to be writable.

Common, you can't be serious.

777 permissions is open bar, any user/process on that server can write (and delete) your files.

You have to find the user and group running your http server (usually www-data or httpd) and give that user the necessary ownership and permissions.

Which is beyond the scope of support that IPS can provide. They don’t know what that user or group is or what settings are applied. If the user is truly worried about what others on the server might do, they should not be running in a shared environment and instead use a VPS or something else with an isolated container.
