Chmod problems

software development

#1

Hi everyone,

I am trying to install a canned script and I’ve run into a problem. I know that Dreamhost uses a feature that requires to not set any files or directories to 777. But, I can’t even set some files to 755! In fact, everytime I try to do it in WSFTP, it says the chmod went through, but then when I pull up permissions again, they are set back to their original state. What am I doing wrong? I’m no programmer, so be easy with your explanations please. :slight_smile:

Hmm… did you remember to refresh the list after changing file permissions? Hit ‘refresh’ first and then ‘dirinfo’.
All the best,
