In order to use Magento Connect I was told that all files and folders must be publically editable. So my folderes and files are currently set to 777 and 666 respectively. How can I set these back to the correct values? I have been told that the only way I can do this is to do it manually, but surely this isn’t correct, 7000 files?
I can’t use that as it will change files to the same as folders, i need files and folders to be different. Aren’t there any magento team members that can shed any light on this? I can’t launch my store with the permissions as they are currentyl.
