As you stated that is old documentation so just put back your original files.
If you run suPHP and PHPSuexec /fastCGI (php info) the folders will be set 755/644
If it is old documentation, can you please get the moderators to delete the page. It simply wastes peoples time and can really mess up a persons site.
That being said, I’ve now changed back the permissions- well I think I have.
May I ask where up to date documentation exists on how to secure your site?
Since it’s a community maintained wiki, and is editable by end users, maybe something more productive would be to update it rather than nuking content outright. Would be a great way to give back to the community in fact.

I’ll see if I can collect bunch of info into a thread...
Thanks, that would be very helpful. It’s confusing for newbs like me who don’t know what they’re doing to follow out of date instructions.
Correct! Set ip and paste it into the ht.access in manager folder and rename the file to .htaccess
+ you might have to change htaccess in root folder
RewriteRule ^(manager|assets) - [L]
RewriteRule ^assets - [L]
