First: The website works, but not anymore when I've changed the accessrights. So I assume that part works correctly
In the mean time i did:
chmod 777 for only the dir where the files are located(wide open). Then on the files I did a chmod 644 because an .php file only needs read if I understand well. The .php don't need to be executed as far as I know, because php parses the file himself.
Now as soon as I leave the x away it's not working. ...
