I am doing an installation of Wordpress on my VPS. During isntallation I had to set public_hml permissions to 777. Of course, I changed it back after installation, but how can I prevent this on the next installation?
I am intending to install multiple wordpress sites soon, and want the installation to be as smooth as possible. And of course, I am just curious how this works. My folder and files all have owner of my server, and since 750 on public_html gives enough permission for a owner to install wordpress I am curious how it is possible that I have unsufficient permissions.
