File permissions are a system in place in computers and servers to prevent unauthorized use of a file by users. It also helps reduce the spread and penetration of various virus.

Under normal conditions, files should have their chmod permission mask set to 0644, and folders (directories) to 0755. This will enable you and the server to read your files, but not other users.
