Will add a little “x” next to any files/folders set to 777, since this is inherently insecure. Checks all recursive folders that come with a default WordPress install.

This plugin can be CPU intensive as it iterates over your whole folder/file structure to gather statistics.

Notes :

  • Checks root, wp-admin, wp-content, wp-includes and all sub folders
  • Includes your plugin and theme folders
  • Ignores images, text and CSS files
  • Download File Permissions & Size Check Plugin


    Will add a little “x” next to any files/folders set to 777, since this is inherently insecure….

  • Requires PHP 5.1.2 or greater

    Note that this runs on menu load ( when you click “File Permissions”) and can be CPU intensive since it scans and gathers data on all your files.
    Please run this during low traffic.
    It will not show image files to reduce scan time and CPU usage ( will make a separate plugin if anyone needs this).
    This plugin will not return accurate results under IIS or WAMP stack due to how windows handles file permissions.

    What it looks like.

Installation of File Permissions & Size Check

This section describes how to install the plugin and get it working.

  1. Create a folder in your /wp-content/plugins/ called /file-permission-checker
  2. Upload file-perm-check.php and file-perm-check.css to the /wp-content/plugins/file-permission-checker directory
  3. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress

Or just use the Auto Installer.


Why did you make this

I don’t know, sometimes people want to see their permissions I guess.

Will this work on Windows

Yes but the permissions are not the same as Linux/Unix.


None yet
