Perform permissions check

    Sometimes it is useful to re-check folder permissions, for example, when you move a completed site to a production server, or if you change hosting.

    How to check

    If you don't delete the /install folder, you can check permissions by adding 

    /install/default.aspx?installStep=validatePermissions 
    or for 4.7+
    /install/?installStep=filepermissions

    after your base url.

    For example.

    Pre Umbraco 4.7

    http://yourdomainname/install/default.aspx?installStep=validatePermissions 

    Umbraco 4.7+

    http://yourdomainname/install/?installStep=filepermissions

    In umbraco 3 you get direct results, in umbraco 4 you must login first to display the results of the test.
