Aha! That's the difference there.

I will give that a try and report back here.

And it's not MyBB dependant, it's how *nix file system (and permissions) works.

I do understand that this is not specific towards MyBB forum software, in fact, many CMS software can benefit from this.

However, many admins are not aware of this method of protecting their website files and this is one way of doing this.

My reason for posting this is trying to understand why 2 CHMOD methods did not work, but one did.

@labrocca gave a simple explanation for this.
