Changing permissions via FTP

Support > Hosting > FTP access

You can assign permissions to the files and directories in your hosting account yourself.
There are three types of permissions that can be configured for files and scripts:

Read permissions:

permission to read files

(r as in read)

Write permissions:

permission to make changes to files

(w as in write)

Execute permissions:

Permission to execute files (programs)

(x as in execute)

Another way to use CHMOD is with numbers for assigning access permissions. Numbers in the octal system (0-7) are used for this.

The default permissions for directories are –rwxr-x-r-x or 755; for files the default is –rw-r--r— or 644.

The CHMOD calculator makes it easy to generate the equivalent number.
