Oh, right... guess I should have read those posts a bit more thouroughly

I am trying to understand, basically my YaBB SE site was fine with permissions 755 and I was able to do everything, but SMF needs to be 777 or I am limited on doing things?  Why have that change?  I think most hosts don't let you change to 777 and shut sites down for that.... and not everyone has the cash to host themselves.

If 755 works for you, that is fine.  But on some hosts you need 777.
