How to set permissions on files and folders?

 

You need a FTP client. E.g. FileZilla (See How to get and install FileZilla).

  • Run FileZilla Client.
  • Connect to your webserver (See How to upload files to server via FTP).
  • On the right side of your FTP client, there are displayed files on your server. Click the right mouse button on these files and select File Attributes.
  • You can choose if you want to use recursive changing of attributes:
    • Apply to all files and directories
    • Apply to files only
    • Apply to directories only.
