Correct permissions

Please advise about the correct permissions in v. 2.x:

Do I really need to set 777 for ALL subfolders and ALL files (including HTACCESS and index.php) in var, skins, images and catalog folder?

Currently it is set as 777 for the main folder (eg. var) and 755 for subfolders and 644 for HTACCESS and index.php.


(newbie , don’t quote me)

if your server doesn’t allow 777 i think you can use 755.
