can anybody tell me how to do this plz Answered

i downloded this program and in the "readme'' folder it says:

Install Instructions

Upload the files to your server in the exact same structure as you see in the sourcefiles.zip.

This is important! MAKE SURE FOLDER "TEMP" HAS 777 AS PERMISSION

To do this just navigate to that folder with your favorite ftp program,
select its properties (often right mouse menu) and set it to 777.

If you dont do this the images wont be written and the save button wont work!

BUT!!!! if you have MOD_SECURITY enabled dont set your permissions to 777 but keep it at 755 the default value.
If you dont do this the final end result wont be saved eventhough a "save file" box is shown!

That's all there is to it.

Hi from the North,
I don't any experience that can help you uploading to a server.

Is "thank you for your business" an Aussie slang ?
Got to let you know "for your business" might be putting people off your question.
Regards,
A

"Thank you for your business" is not any Aussie slang that I have ever heard. I have lived in western Sydney for a very long time, and I don't understand the question. Maybe the "slang" is more demographic than geographic. :D

I'm guessing that everything after "it says" is quoted from someone else's note, so the "thank you for your business" came from whoever sent the OP that message rather than being directed to Instructables.

Of course, in that case I'd strongly suggest going back to whoever wrote that note and asking them to explain in more detail. If you gave them money, it's their responsibility to support the product.

Whoa there, what are you installing? It sounds like they're asking you to give read/write access to everyone, which in general is a Bad Thing. You could be opening up your computer to a virus or other malware.

I'm not sure what question you're asking. It sounds like what you really need is an intro-to-Unix class, so you understand how to manage permissions.

This seems to be assuming that "your favorite FTP program" has the ability to set Unix file permissions. Not all do. If yours doesn't, you'll have to telnet or ssh to log onto the server and use the chmod command.

Not knowing what you're trying to do, I hesitate to advise you further. 777 gives every user permission to read, write, and modify the file. Depending on what permissions have been set on the directory which contains these, it *could* be a security risk. I'd want to understand a lot more about why they were telling you to do it this way before deciding whether it made any sense at all.
