I am novice so that before installation I changed attributes of all files to 777 (I did not want problems in install process). But now after installation I dont know if some files with 777 atribute are (or not) security risky for my phorum. Please tell me to what files (*.php) I must change attribute (and what chmod must be) so that my installaed phorum be secure and functioned. Thank you.

Why not install Phorum5 instead? If security is an issue to you, you'll be better of with an application that is maintained than the officially no longer supported and maintained Phorum3.

As for instructions on how to setup the security for Phorum3, please read the docs/install.txt that was packaged in the distribution.
