    FTP: change folder permission from 777 to something a little safer once files have been fully uploaded

    Asked by talk2bks on September 01, 2014 at 11:02 AM

    So someone hacked my site and started deleting things. Although I don't believe it had anything to do with the folder permissions that were being created from jotform but my host did ask me to stop putting 777 folders on the server.


    Is there a way to change a folder permissions back to something a little safer once the files have been fully uploaded?

    Let me create a request about this to our developers. If possible, try using Secure FTP connection when adding the integration. I think that should help.

    Thank you!
