    Hello,

    Up until yesterday I had a functional self-hosted blog at razorianfly.com, but last night I did something, and I don't know how to resolve it. I now cannot access my entire blog. Here's what I did:

    In an attempt to create and upload an apple-touch-icon.png (web clip icon) I set all the folders in the root directory, to 777. I know, shoot me, I shouldn't have, but I did - I know nothing about permissions and did it in haste. Now, i googled around and found folders should be set to '755' and files '644' ... so I've done that, but still nothing. I'm locked out, completely. Wordpress dashboard, everything. I can access /siteadmin which is a relief, but as I say I'm not very good with this type of stuff, I wouldn't know where to start.

    The folders I changed the permissions for include:

    • anon_ftp
    • bin
    • cgi-bin
    • conf
    • error_docs
    • etc
    • httpdocs
    • httpsdocs
    • lib
    • libexec
    • pd
    • private
    • statistics
    • subdomains
    • tmp
    • usr
    • var
    • web_users

    If anyone can help me bring the blog live again I will be extremely grateful.

    I wouldn't say it normally, but this is really urgent.

    Thanks,
    R-Fly

    Fixed, I changed the .htaccess to 666 ... and it's all back. Phew ... :D
