The installation of a custom
script often requires a special file permission; however,
please note that the appropriate permissions are set automatically
upon upload to your cgi-local. However, in some instances
it may still be necessary to set a file or directory permission.
In instances (such as controllable anonymous FTP) whereby a file or directory's
public read or write permissions must be changed, the File
Manager can be used. However, our recommended FTP client, WSFTP,
can be used to set any numeric chmod permission setting.
Enter the desired chmod command in the SITE command
Suppose you were preparing to enable anonymous FTP and you needed to disable
public write access to a file named sample.htm. As mentioned, the File
Manager can be used to accomplish this task, but for this example, the WSFTP
SITE command is used.
command to set public write access OFF is: chmod
Follow the instructions above to display the SITE command field and enter
the desired chmod command as shown here.
If the file in question resides in a subdirectory of your web site, you will
first need to open the respective subdirectory before issuing the SITE command.
