Reading most security threads i concluded it is best to move the images directories into 755 security settings.
While doing so you also create the issue instant thumbnails cannot be made by CS-cart. it needs needs writing and thus 777. this is for ex needed for the pics from the options of products. This instant thumbnail creation is also needed with the new quicksearch tool.
Does anybody have any idea how to let Cs cart create the thumbs being 755 or how to overcome this issue.
The server has to run in suPHP or FastCGI mode. Then 777 and 666 isn’t needed.
