I was just told by LunarPages today that their system does not allow you to use chmod 777. For some reason this will disable it, and it won't work properly.

I was told that you need to use 755 for folders and 644 for files.

I am not clear on the hows and whys of this, but thought I would share what I was told, in case someone is experiencing problems.

They had a hijack issue yesterday that totally disabled my site, and once they got that resolved, it wasn't possible to sign in to the site. They looked and determined that some of my folders/files were set to 777 and this is what the problem was. Once they changed them around, it is working fine.

anyways, this is just FYI if you use lunarpages.
