Security of site/cart

On setting up cs-cart there was a number of folders that needed CHMOD set to 777. On completion the only thing it asked me to do was remove install.php. Is this assuming that all the security settings in place for cs-cart on my site are safe from being hacks/rummaged through by ppl?

Anyone have any thoughts on this one, is it ok as it is setup?

I would also CHMOD your config.php file back to 644 after it’s all set up and in place. You could also rename your admin.php to something else and then reflect that change in the config.php file. Somebody in another thread mentioned their config file got hacked, so leaving it set at 777 might not be wise

Great suggestions and done, thanks very much.
