Permissions Problems with Gallery2

apps

#1

I have recently set up the One-Click-Install Gallery2.
The setup went fine, and everything seems to be working.
I want to install more plugins for the gallery, but I get the following message:

"Before you can proceed, you have to change some permissions so that Gallery can install plugins for you. It’s easy. Just execute the following in a shell or via your ftp client:

cd gallery2
chmod 777 modules
chmod 777 themes"

Using my FTP client, I changed the directories titled “modules” and “themes” to 777 for the permissions.

I have no idea what the “cd gallery2” means. I don’t see that as a directory on the server, and I’m not sure what to do. Any help would be great, I appreciate the time.

Thanks,
Southwoods

cd gallery2 means, simply, change directory to gallery2. if you changed the permissions of those 2 folders listed, then you were already in the gallery2 folder.

Heres a quick list of commands for unix. http://mally.stanford.edu/~sr/computing/basic-unix.html this should help in the future as well and also help if you ever stay onto ssh to modify files/permissions of your data.

That should have done it. It still doesn’t work?

Dont see why it would still be failing… I did a one click to test it, and went ahead and activated all the plugins

Went into the site admin, uninstalled URL_Rewrite, Captcha and Debugger. Then left the page, put up some images, came back and reinstalled them. All was well. There must be an error somewhere. the one click install should set chmods for you by default to the proper permissions.
