How do I use chmod?
« on: January 07, 2005, 05:36:36 PM »
CHMOD, which stands for "CHange MODe" is a way to change file permissions on Linux, Unix, and similar servers.  Most servers run one of those two, but some run Windows - in most cases, if your server is running Windows, you will have to contact your host to get permissions changed.  If you're not sure, it can't hurt to try ;).

Most FTP programs allow fairly easy access to this, such as Filezilla, SmartFTP, and others.  To change a file or folder's "mode" or permissions, simply right click on it and go to "permissions", "properties", or "chmod".  Some clients will instead have a button to press, or will require Ctrl-click (Mac.)

For BulletProof FTP (similar general appearance):

Select directory and/or file (remember Ctrl and Shift can be used for multiple selections), right-click, select Change attributes and either check the boxes or type the number.
