Wrong permissions on configuration file, should not be world writable!

Hello Experts,
when I open
http://192.168.0.2/phppgadmin/
I got this message
"Wrong permissions on configuration file, should not be world writable!" on my FF 2
I do not know what I had done wrong since the last time I login to phppgadmin.

Please someone explain me the reason and give me a solution for this

It is an Ubuntu 7.04 + apache2 + mysql 5.0

and I think phpMyAdmin - 2.9

Thank you

change the permission of the configuration file to read only.
Open you ftp connect, find the file , right click on it and you should see a option called attributes or chmod or permissions .

Change it to 444

Just a few minutes back Google show me this.

sudo chmod 705 /var/www/phpmyadmin/config.inc.php

Look like that solved the problem.

Now what you suggest 705 or 444. And Do you know the meaning of 705 and 444? What kind of permission it will give to which all users?

I'm new to linux :)

Thank you

And hey, congratulation on the laptop. Did you received it?

444 will give only read to all .

705 will give read/write/execute to the owner , nothing to the group , and read/execute to the public
