Every file and folder that exists on your website has a set of permissions. If the files or folder’s permissions are misconfigured, your website might not work as expected.
You can easily fix your file permissions by opening your Hosting → Manage → Fix File Ownership section:
Tick the option to confirm that you want to set the files and folders to default permissions and click on Execute:

- For folders, the default setting is 755
If you wish to set the permissions to a specific setting, you can do just that straight from File Manager:
