Folder permissions


This has probably been asked already but I can’t find it.

What permissions do a regular Kirby installation folders subfolders and files need to have in order to work? Specifically in localhost if that is relevant.


644/755 is the standard requirement.

thank you, is that for all files/folders ?

what about ownership?


The content, thumbs, site/accounts and assets/avatars folder must at least be writable by the Apache user.

And the files/folders should be owned by the Apache user, usually www-data

I think this is related so I’ll just add a comment here: I ran into problems with this when I tried to set up Dropbox sync à la It might be good to include this as a note in the recipe/tutorial.
