Chmod- changing UNIX file permissions

  1. Jan 20, 2005 #1
    SOMEONE please tell me how to change my access to a folder to 755. I have WS-FTP Pro and I thought all you had to do was right click and select ftp commands however this is not an option for me

    Click to select the file. Go to the File menu, select Operations, select FTP Commands, select CHMOD, and hit the buttons you want.

    I will try it that way sometime. I figured out how to do it in cpanel so it is very easy for me to to do it this way.

    the easiest way is just to telnet to the server, login in with your username and pword and change them with the chmod command.
