SocialEngine 4 Permissions

One of the biggest problems that occur with SocialEngine is due to the fact that the file permissions are correct always make sure you check your permissions every few weeks. You can do this via your admin panel:

Also if you rather use an FTP Client to set permissions,

This will run a check on whole SE Install.

If you are using a Unix server (or Unix variant, like Linux, OS X, FreeBSD, etc.),
