Am i right in thinking the chmod for vanilla should be
files 644 ?
you should chmod, cache , uploads and conf to 777
Do i chmod config.php also to 777?
The folders, you may need to individually chmod files within those folders too. So yep.
775 should be fine, 777 is pretty bad.
644 is fine for anything outside of cache/ uploads/ and conf/
