File and folder permissions control who can see your files and use your folders. They can control whether you will be able to install [[Modifications|mods]] to your forum. You will use Unix <b>chmod</b> values to designate permissions. On most servers, a setting of 755 for folders and 644 for files will work. If this does not work on your hosting service, you may need 777 or 775 for folders, and 666 or 664 for files. Some hosts do not allow using 777 for folders or 666 for files -- using such high values will cause Internal Server Errors, 500 erors, or other errors. If the permission on your files or folders does not make them writable, the SMF {{#switch: {{lc:{{{1|install}}}}}|install=install|upgrade=upgrad}}er will report the problem -- if it can detect it.

File and directory permissions control who can see your files and use your directories. They can control whether you will be able to install [[Modifications|mods]] to your forum. On Linux and other Unix-like servers the [[chmod|chmod command]] is used to designate permissions. On most servers, a setting of 755 for directories and 644 for files will work.

[edit] [purge] Template documentation

This template is meant to be included in articles on installing and upgrading, to provide the information about CHMOD/file permissions. To see it in action, please look at the testcases, or at Special:WhatLinksHere/Template:Set_file_permissions

Examples:

{{Set file permissions|install}}
{{Set file permissions|upgrade}}
  • install the word "install" will be inserted at several key points
  • update the word "update" will be inserted at several key points
