chmod permissions and ftp


Recommended Posts

Hey guys here is one for you!


I need to change permissions for some files and folders so I can upload images.


I use xp home for my computer and internet explorer for my browser.


I am using the ftp thru internet explorer to reach my yahoo web hosted site.


When I go to properties for the files or folders I get a messaged that my server does not support changing file permissions.


I called yahoo and they say they do support changing them.


The tech I talked with got on my site and changed permissions on a file and on a folder with no problem but I cant. I can not find any information on this problem anywhere.


Hats off to anyone that can help me figure this one out.

Hi kingmontez,


Try using an FTP program such as WS_FTP Pro. Within the program you can click on files and change their permissions.


Additionally, do a search on google for the term "chmod" which is the term used for changing permissions.


Hope that helped!

Good luck,
