Hi @doreasss
I’m guessing your root is /var/www/html and you’re using the default www-data user.
Run these commands to reset rights:

find /var/www/html -type d -exec chmod 755 {} \;
find /var/www/html -type f -exec chmod 644 {} \;
chown -R www-data:www-data /var/www/html

Hi there:
if you using nginx ,please you charge affiliated users is nginx , and set the permissions to 755 , so , you after will no longer be error. (run chown -R nginx * and chmod -R 755 * )
if you using apache , so , it needs to be solved separately
