    I dunno what has happened but all of a sudden all the sites in my ~Sites/ folders have had their permissions changed to Group & Others: No access.

    I run MAMP on my iMac and all my sites are in that folder. I can view them fine via http://localhost:8888/mysite/ but now can't access them from other networked machines via

    I can change the previleges to group & others : red only, but after doing that oddly on the networked machines PHP isn't working and I can view all the PHP in the source, despite it working locally.

    Any ideas?

    Did you try repair permissions in disk utility?

    PHP needs to be read write execute for the owner and read and execute for everyone else -> 755.

    Do you have an FTP client? If so, just find your files and CHMOD HTML/images etc to 644 and 755 to PHP files and the folders in which they reside.
