    I tried to change my root directories file permission to 777. However I accidentally changed all folders & files to 777 - whoops.

    I now get the following error message every time I try to access the website in my browser:

    I have since tried every combination of file permissions I can think of but still have the same problem.

    Is there a fix for this or some way to restore the original file permissions without losing my blog?

    +rep for solution since I have searched online to solve this problem and it appears fairly common but with no solution I can find.
