Hope you dont mind, I may start to bombard you with a whole lot of questions.
I have one regarding the Cache file and how I can set it up to be more secure. I will go in any direction, I just need your trusty advice.
A while ago, I posted a thread to do with my initial ojs site getting hacked.
If you set your file permissions wide open (e.g. 777), someone else on a multi-user system could have used your file area to launch attacks without needing to find a vulnerability on your website. You should never use 777 permissions on a production server; many alternatives are available but will depend on your server configuration.
It seems we cant do without the 777 file permissions. could you possibly present me with an alternative? Or point me in a direction to research upon.
Also just a more general question, if I set files to be world writeable (777). Does this mean that anyone can edit those files residing on the server?
