 And it's important which user accesses the file: the owner or somebody else. This depends on how PHP is executed by the webserver. If it is running as (F)CGI, the user is typically the owner of the file, otherwise not. You can look up how it's handled on your server in the PHP info under "​Server API"​. ​ And it's important which user accesses the file: the owner or somebody else.

 Of course you can give full permissions to all files and folders (i.e. 777), and CMSimple_XH will work well. But that sacrifices security, as somebody might be able to modify a file, that shouldn'​t be modified. So for maximum security set only the necessary permissions,​ i.e. write protect all files and folders except those who need write permissions. Which files and folders need write permissions is explained in [[installation]]. Of course you can give full permissions to all files and folders (i.e. 777), and CMSimple_XH will work well.
