loading visits - how do you change chmod?!? 6 Years, 10 Months ago Karma: 0
So i see that you have to change the chmod from 777 to 755?

How on earth do i do that?

I dont use ftp? - i dont really know what it is or what i would use it for.
what is total commander?!?

If someone could give me a step by step process for a beginner, that would be great

Any help is much appreciated

Hi, the solution after my long investigation is:

There may be a problem with permissions of your folders. Your webhosting provider may restricts the access to folders which have permissions of 777 (read/write/execute for Owner/Group/World).
You should have the correct folder permissions set to 755 (read/write/execute for Owner and Read for Group/World) for folders and 644 for files (Read/Write for Owner, Read for Group/World)

This applies to all folders in which is the joomlawatch.js.php, -> components,
com_joomlawatch, js .. check and set the correct permissions

I would also like to thank Charles Fernandez from www.heavensapartments.com who made allowed me find the cause of this problem on his hosting provider.

You can use Total Commander (ghisler.com) to access your FTP (Ctrl + N). Then, when connected, and with cursor on folder, click Files -> Change Attributes

a nice way to do so via command line is

cd /your/site/root/path

for folder only to be 775 + sub dir

find . -type d -exec chmod 0775 {} ;

for file only to be 600 + sub dir

find . -type f -exec chmod 0644 {} ;

then you need to manually change permission for some folders/files that required higher permissions to work properly, as cache, tmp , images etc
