What is the Recommended permission for WordPress files and folders?

  • All folders and directories should be 775, 755 or 750.
  • wp-config.php should be 644. Set 440 or 400 to prevent other users on the server from reading it.
  • .htaccess – 644 is the recommended permission.
  • php.ini – 644 is the recommended permission.
  • All other files should be 664.

Note: No directories should ever have 777, even upload directories. These recommended permissions may vary based on hosting users and security. You can read more in WordPress.org & Smashing magazine
