All of my directories are being set to 705 by default, and all files (no matter what type) are being set to 604 by default. Everything seems to be working fine. Is it OK to leave them all like that, or are there potential problems I should be aware of? Also, why do you disagree with DavidKohen's statement that scripts should have execute permissions?

I need a little clarification of the terminology in your last answer. Are .php files considered "data files" or "programs"?

Thanks! There was some helpful info here (although, since I'm no techie, I'm not sure I understood it all). I tried the ps -ej command, but all I got was a long list with the column headings PID, PGID, SID (all numbers), TTY (mostly ?) TIME and COMMAND. No sign of the user names or the apache or ws-ftp processes you mentioned. What should I be seeing?

gorkypl and bahamat say that PHP scripts do not need to be executable, but you say they do. Why the conflicting advice?

Thanks! I think I'm starting to understand how this all works. How would I determine which http server I'm running under?

Thanks! The first two sections were the stuff I already knew, but the last section was helpful. It sounds like I need to figure out whether the webserver runs as an inetuser Group user or an Other user and set permissions accordingly. What Other users might need to be able to read the PHP scripts?

No, I'm not familiar with Windows NT.
