File Permission Issues

Learn how to handle file permission issues with your Helix Ultimate theme.

There are two ways of accessing files when working with Joomla: either directly via your web server or through an FTP client. Different files and directories have permissions specifying who can read, write or access them. Sometimes the permission settings of your web server and your FTP client can collide, so that when trying to install a theme or extension, you are suddenly confronted with an error message, or you may not be able to save theme settings.

To resolve these issues, you need to change the permissions of the affected files or directories. We recommend 755 for directories and 644 for files.

Take a look at the Joomla documentation for more information.
