Could anyone explain or outline the file permissions settings required to install the SilverStripe CMS. What are the permissions necessary for each folder? Also, does Apache or lighttpd need to own any of the SilverStripe folders or files? Please explain in terms of Owner, Group, and Other using numerical notation and explain in terms of READ, WRITE and EXECUTE for each group. Particularly, I am looking to know what mode each of the directories requires for a standard installation. What does SilverStripe expect in terms of folder and file permissions? Any help will be appreciated.

For instance folder mysite? chmod 755?
