I'm starting to support WordPress and am VERY green. I just inherited a site and installed Akeeba Backup for WP Pro. I took the first backup and got a message that it couldn't read a number of files and to check the permissions. One of the files was wp-content/index.php. In cpanel, I see the permission as 1204, which makes no sense to me. The others where wp-content/plugins/index.php (1204), wp-content/themes/index.php (1204) and wp-content/uploads/index.php (1204).
Does this make any sense to you? They should be 644, correct? And folders 755? I am seeing occasional 776, 775 and 777 folders.
Thank you for your insight,
