Change File or Folder Permission with cPanel

Permissions and ownership errors

A 403 Forbidden error can also be caused by incorrect ownership or permissions on your files and folders.

Rule of thumb for correct permissions:

Folders: 755
Files: 644

Linux permissions can be represented by numbers, letters, or words. They also include an entry for Owner, Group, and Everyone.

755 stands for Owner: read, write, execute; Group: read, execute; Everyone: read, execute
644 stands for Owner: read, write; Group: read, Everyone: read
