    Do i leave these directories or files with 777 after install?

    backup
    tmp
    includes/config.inc.php

    Suggest link or Suggest category doesnt work, so I am wondering about been hacked.

    p.s. I have updated with patch 1.2.02

    Helllo Ioannis Freris,
    Please explain in more detail what occurs after suggestion link/category.
    Which version and what template do you use?

    Hi Dave Baker,

    I am using Pro 1.2 with 1.2.01 / 1.2.02 + crons + sitemap , for template i use turnkeywebdirectory, but the same happens when i use Greenleaves.
    I did the update yesterday afternoon and i noticed the problem last night.

    I trasfered the code from Greenleaves template to turnkeywebdirectory because it was working only for 1.5 Free. I am using turnkeywebdirectory for more than 10 days without a problem.

    Suggest link or Suggest category when I click on them, opens a window telling me to same the php file of the page. (suggest-category.php or suggest-link.php)
    I renamed those files to .bak because the hosting support told me that they reserve too many resources when someone click on them.

    I also cant backup the database it tells me to save manage-database.php

    Good Day,

    My hosting provider raised security concerns about the 777 permissions as well.
    Can it be changed after installation without any problems?

    Hi buyersguides,
    Actually you can make unwritable
    includes/ and includes/config.inc.php
    but other directories should be writable for uploading and Smarty compiled files.

    Thanks for letting me know. I will look into this more detailed after I have completed the installation at the moment I'm getting the error:

    please check if you have a database called "buyersguides".
    If the DB exists, please send me your cPanel or FTP/phpMyAdmin credentials, I will investigate the problem, else you should create that database.

    Hello Alex,
    Thanks for the offer to help. The problem has been resolved. the hostname for the MySQL had to be spelled correctly.
