Hi, I'm afraid your tutorial are recommending bad practices.

You should not access CI by using the public folder. That should be set to your document root in Apache. Please update your tutorial to reflect that.

"sudo chmod 777" are a security risk. 777 should never be applied to a folder. Only owner and/or group** should have read and write access to your files.

Wrong:
http://example.com/public/

Correct:
http://example.com/

** group = www-data or what your apache/php runs under.

Thank you for the feedback. For the root folder, I did it, but forget to report in the tutorial, it is updated.

Great ! Thank, I through the group was "Apache" and I was wondering why it was not working. Of course, it's "www-data".
