Hello, I have created droplet with wordpress 4.9.1 on ubuntu 16.04 using standard Digital Ocean one-click-app creator. After installation everything had been working properly but after a while I figured out that ufw was showing wired warning “/ is group writable!” on the top of every ufw commands output. So for example every time I executes
sudo ufw status verbose it prints something like this:
WARN: / is group writable! Status: active [my firewall’s rules here]
ls -ld / shows that indeed privileges of / are drwxrwxr-x, insteed of typical 755.
Actually, I don’t have much experience on linux administration, but I have never seen that kind of setting before, so it is a little bit strange for me. On the other hand this setting comes from basic DO installation and I don’t want to break my droplet down by changing that. So here are my questions:
