Notification on top of administration menu

Hey, It’s been a very long time ago since I have been here.
I have a question, please don’t shoot me if I did this at the wrong place
The question: If I login to do some changes I always see this message at the top:
WARNING: The file /home/fla/public_html/mainfile.php can be overwritten by the server.
Change the write permissions of this file for security reasons.
under Unix (444), under Windows (read only tick)


I have been searching and searching but can’t find how to solve this issue.

Can someone help me?

Re: Notification on top of administration menu

Using FTP software of your choice, you should change the Read/Write property of the file to "444" or "404"

However, sometimes your server doesn't allow for it, so having something like "604" might be OK too.

Re: Notification on top of administration menu

Then you should be OK - the key is that nobody but you as the owner can write to the file.

Re: Notification on top of administration menu

I thought it had something to do with the "unprotected" that I get when I visit
my website: ... " Niet beveiligd | www.fla-ts.com
It is strange that this is not the case when I go to the website with Internet Explorer

Maybe I'm worried about nothing

Best regards, Fernand

That has nothing to do with XOOPS security. See:
