I just finished a project using CodeIgniter. I ftp’d the files to the host provider’s servers. When I attempted to view the website, I received a ‘500 Internal Server Error’. Viewing the error logs, I found: SoftException in Application.cpp:252: File “/home/arrowcol/public_html/index.php” is writeable by group. I looked at the permissions of the index.php file and found that it was set to 0666, so I changed it to 0755 and the site is now up and running.
