I've searched and searched for the answer to this...but I just can't find it. In part because I'm not technical at all.
So I want to install the W3 Total Cache plugin. In all the videos online showing how to do this, it requires the user to change file permissions for wpcontent and upload to 777, before changing back to 775 after installing the plugin.
So firstly I don't know how to change permissions in the DH panel? Though some things I've read say you can't do this (at least not as easily as I've seen in the demos with other panels).
Secondly during my search I've read a few conflicting things. One suggested that with Dreamhost there's no need to change the permissions to install W3Tcache. Another that DH recommends against using W3Tcache.
If anyone could help that would be great, thanks
