Reset Files and Directories permissions

From time to times, we must fix permissions on files and directory in order to secure an installation or to fix a broken one.

The process is quite straight forward and simple.

If you are hosted with us:
1) Log to your server using SSH
2) Execute the following software (it is installed with our servers):
fixpermissions

If you are hosted on your own dedicated server
1) Log to your server using SSH
2) Point yourself in your Apache folder (at the root of your website)
3) Run those commands

find . -type f -exec chmod 644 {} \;
find . -type d -exec chmod 755 {} \;
chmod 550 pear
chmod 550 mage

And the last bit: QA!
4) Visit your Magento's install and see if everything still run smoothly


And that's about it!
