Hi All

Just a quick question on file permissions and what they should be. I have just installed M2E, grids plus a system maintenance extension and reset the Directories to 755 and files back to 644 but now all extensions are no longer showing anywhere in the backend. Is there a rogue folder or something that should be set differently?

They were all there and functioning before…. any suggestions/insights would be helpful…

Hi Mark,

Sounds like that additional extension has had some undesired effects.

I’d suggest contacting the author and finding out that cause is, as a suggestion if it’s ALL your extensions then it could be one of these folders “app/etc/modules/” as it’s the files in the modules folder that enable/disable the extensions.

Have seen on Magento forums that the following folders require writable permissions:
– var and all subfolders
– media
– app/etc/use_cache.ser

Note: this does not necessarily mean 777 mode. It depends on the server config.

If I set these to 777 (yes I know that this is not secure) then all the extensions are functional.

What do you think to these folder settings or what they should be?

Hi Mark,

Looking at one of our installs, we have var & media with 777, app at 755, etc at 777 and no idea on use_cache.ser I don’t see that :)

Do note that these values can be different based upon your hosting provider, try 755 and see if that works first.
