How to chmod a folder to 777?


#1

I need to chmod a folder to 777 to allow my user to upload files but I could find a web tool to do it. Could you tell me how to change it? Thank you!

I don’t think FTP can do it.
only telnet does. however, dreamhost doesn’t allow me telnet

CHMOD works fine for me through FTP using FlashFXP.

If you have windows xp, you can use windows explorer to ftp to your site. Just right click on the file you want changed and select properties and put a check on all the boxes.

The windows FTP worked. I didn’t know FTP can do it.
SSH doesn’t work with my hosting plan though.
thank you guys!

777 is highly unsecure. Can you give more details as to the setup? I think you might be able to just get away with default (755) or even just 775.

/nod, no telnet. Telnet sucks. Use SSH.

All plans support it. As pointed out, you just need to enable it through the control panel.
