You see in the installation and here

File permissions

The php installer needs to be able write files during installation, which should be restricted again afterwards. It needs to create/have write-access to:
The main installation directory (for creating .htaccess file and assets directory)
The mysite folder (to create _config.php)
After the install, the assets directory is the only directory that needs write access.
Image thumbnails will not show in the CMS if permission is not given

Can you take a look at the attached file above and tell me to which you are reffering? (group, public etc)

When you perform the installation you will see certain files and folders that require full read-write-update permissions (chmod 777). For information as to how or what these are have a look at:
