Magento folder permissions

Sep 21, 2013 by reema40
Hi there,
I am using Magento for my site and I just found that all the folders in the media/storage directory have a default permission of 777. So I changed all those folder permissions to 755. But now when a user adds any new product with an image, the new folder permission is automatically defaulted to 777. Is there a specific setting or configuration for this value? Can anyone please advice?
Thanks

Using your FTP client, find the file you want to change permissions for, then right-click on that file inside the web server and choose the file permissions option. Then in the attribute field enter then enter the permission number, and save the file.
