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 HostingManageFix File Ownership section:

Tick the option to confirm that you want to set the files and folders to default permissions and click on Execute:

All done! Now you know how to fix your file and folder permissions 😊


  • Fixing file ownership will set the permissions to these values:

    For files, the default setting is 644

    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 in both hPanel and cPanel
