Synology permissions for web folder and site folders

I am having trouble with permissions.

I am using synology ds411+ with virtual hosting setup

I have a folder for websites volume1/web
The sites are in
volume1/web/site1.....
volume1/web/site2

etc

I had issues with open dir which were solved by an EE expert but thereafter have lost the plot on what the permissions of the folders should be.

I tried having looked at some synology threads

cd ..
DiskStation> chmod -R 777 volume1/web
DiskStation> chmod -R 777 volume1/web/AcousticLaptops

phpmyadmin didnt like that flagged red.

then I tried 750

but now joombla wont install at all

it gives error
Warning: session_start(): open(/var/services/tmp/sess_9iv22prv0klte5pvs092tuif45, O_RDWR) failed: Permission denied (13) in /volume1/web/AcousticLaptops/libraries/joomla/session/session.php on line 658

so I know I have now screwed up the permissions.

so rather than worry about joombla could someone help me with the permissions set up on the synology.

I am unsure of to go via the control panel or folder properties or do in putty with chmod.

I think if I can get this right my issues with web dev would disappear.

I use a shared hosting service (Linux with FastCGI) for my PHP sites.  Don't really know much about Synology, but it's obvious that they have Linux support, and they have an online support forum with a FAQ.

Yes.   Both scripts and images reside in my web root directory and in sub-folders below the web root.
