    • All folders & files should be 0644 (read only)
    • With exception all files & folders under /public folder must be 0777 (writeable) — including the /public folder
  4. The following is optional:
    • Folder /admin/backup should also be 0777, if you want to do database backup using ACP (otherwise you can use phpMyAdmin)
    • File /admin/module/admin_menu.xml should also be 0777, if you want to install/uninstall modules
