Hi,

I'm trying to make some Wordpress and Joomla installations read-only.

I'm using these permissions:

dirs: 555 files: 444 .htaccess: 404 php config file: 404

Is that correct?

Thank you,

Yes, those permissions are correct for read-only.

Note, however, that if you set those permissions throughout your application directories, you may have problems uploading media, installing plugins, etc, as those actions require write permissions.
