Setting Secure Working Permissions for Magento (Chown/Chmod) SSH

There is a lot of content on the web about setting the correct (secure) permissions for Magento, much of which, differs somewhat.

We’ve detailed below, what we feel are decent permissions which leave your Magento store secure and protected whilst giving the necessary access across the site in order for Magento to continue functioning as expected/intended.

If running as server user.

If not running as server user (apache), the above permissions will cause 500 internal server error.

You can learn more on secure permissions for Magento at this in-depth explanation of the above at Nexcess or from the official Magento documentation.
