Folder permission

Advert test
GUys - think I FUBARed the permissions on the root folder of a hosting account. It's the public_html root folder on Blacknight.
What should the CHMOD settings on this be?

Better to make it 555 (r-xr-xr-x). It will protect from new files being uploaded by hacker in the root folder or deletion of files. Such as .htaccess or index.php. When you need to add some files and remove from root folder, you may change it to 755, then set 555 back.
