the erro says it all. you just need to change the permission to read only, how to do this will depend on your server. ask you host for it if they are helpful.

thanks for that is it something they have to do or can i do it from the control panel of my normal web page


Depends on your web hosting server. For example, your ftp software, (like Filezilla) would allow you to view all your folders and files in the osCommerce directories. If you right click on a folder, choose File Attributes, you can set the Read/Write permissions for that folder that way. Some ftp software program will use the term "Properties" instead of File Attributes, so poke around and you'll find it. Most ftp software programs allow you to do this. Your hosting company will most likely tell you that permissions settings are your responsibility.
