- Comment (2)
WordPress Secured File and Directory Permissions which will help you to keep your files away from the Hackers view. It’s one of a added security too.
WordPress directory permissions are much more important to secure your files from the hackers. Especially, the Default and config files and common directories. Here I am going to share some preventive file and directory permissions to secure your WordPress files. Let’s start with root directory, Your root directory of the WordPress(WP ) file system requires 0755 or 0705. The following list can help you to understand easily.
Path More Recommended Security root directory 0705 0755 wp-includes/ 0705 0755 .htaccess 0604 0644 wp-admin/index.php 0604 0644 wp-admin/js/ 0705 0755 wp-content/themes/ 0705 0755 wp-content/plugins/ 0705 0755 wp-admin/ 0705 0755 wp-content/ 0705 0755 wp-config.php 0644 0644
The most secured Directory permissions for files is 0604. Because it wont allow the group permissions and also the prevent the execute permissions. The following image shows the file permissions.
Likewise you can set the directory permissions. We have to secure the files which are listed above.
I see where you are going with this, though from experience I can say that hackers don’t care about permissions. 🙂
Once hacker has installed a back door script, they can simply change all permissions, or delete all files for that matter, without a second thought.
I applaud you for clarity of your article, though though this may not help inpreventing hackers from modifying or deleting files. A range of other precautions are needed to fully protect against hackers, including ensuring a solid backup of all files is maintained (for ready recovery).
May it can be overwritten by using remote scripts. This is one of a securing method to prevent hacking. Also this will help not to crawl the bot inside it. You have to secure files using .htaccess is important. Anyhow the method helps to know the better directory permissions.
