IF you have permissions to access SSH (secure shell) via putty you can chmod the files and directories. If you do not have shell access, you can run the commands from cron by setting up a temporary cron job. Copy and paste the command into a cron job. Run the job about 2 minutes after saving the job. When using the command by putty or a cron job, the use of the full physical path to public_html is recommended for best results.

 

For files use:

 

find /home/xxxxxx/domains/xxxxxxx.com/public_html -type f -exec chmod 644 {} \;

 

and for directories use:

 

find /home/xxxxxx/domains/xxxxxxx.com/public_html -type d -exec chmod 755 {} \;

 

To check for recent file changes within the last day on your system use these commands from putty (SSH - secure shell) or via a cron job. If you run the command from a cron job you can schedule it to check for changed files several times each day. Results will be sent to the domain account owner and show the time/date stamp for any changed files. When using the command by putty or a cron job, the use of the full physical path to public_html is recommended for best results.

 

find /home/xxxxxx/domains/xxxxxxx.com/public_html -type f -ctime -1 -exec ls -ls {} \;

Please note your sites files may be located in public_html, httpdocs, www, or a similar place, and your physical path may also be different than in the examples. Adjust the physical path accordingly
