Modify File and Directory Permissions
Posted by William Burdine on 25 October 2017 11:03 AM
Each file and directory (folder) in your account has permissions which control who can read, write and execute that file. When files are created, default permissions are assigned. Most users won't need to change permissions, but there are times when an update, installation, etc. will require a file permissions change.
File permissions can be viewed and changed through either the Control Panels File Manager or most FTP programs. We'll walk you through viewing and changing your permissions through the Control Panels File Manger here.
