Is this duplication of Wikipedia really needed?

Skizzerz (talkcontribs)

Was it even imported properly from Wikipedia?

(Hint: the answer to each question is the same)

EDIT: it appears that this isn't a direct duplication of Wikipedia, but it is still not needed nonetheless (and has an overly-Windows focus right now)

Wikipedia explains the process whereas more than how to do something. Some portions of this would not be allowed on wikipedia. For editors such as yourselves, this maybe very elementary and unneeded, but for newbie editors like me, this information is very valuable.

+1 Adamtheclown. Plus there are other issues involved with chmod like the stuff Nemo is bringing up.

Idea for this article is good but it needs some MediaWiki related info, such as preferred modes for some directories (uploads?).

Appropriate command for MediaWiki

Nemo bis (talkcontribs)

As disgusting as it is, some crappy web hosts on shared servers require people to set ugly permissions on all their executables, such as 755 or even 777. Can we suggest a sensible command to set all files to their original permissions in core, or to whatever other permissions one is forced to, without touching stuff that shouldn't be touched? Something like

find core -type f ! -perm 644 -exec chmod 644 {} +

but a bit less invasive I guess.

Assuming you have full control over your wiki's server (e.g. you own the server), what permissions should be set on the images folder?
