    I just installed a mod where it makes me CHMod these things to 777, How do I do that?

    Exactly how do I do it is what I'm asking. I have to change the CHMod of the folders, and I don't even know what it means to be honest, nor how to even begin to edit it. A step by step would be very much appreciated.

    chmod sets the permissions on a folder.

    This wiki article explains what they mean: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chmod

    chmod 777 means : change the permissions of the file / folder to read, write, and execute for all.

    What are you going to be using the set the permissions (FTP Client, SSH)?

    You can use your cpanel file manager or your ftp program. It is similar to displaying the properties of a folder by right-clicking on them. In Filezilla for example, you can right click on a folder (directory) to chmod it. Once you do it once, you will see how easy it is.

    there is no CHMod button, what do I click as I asked above. Do I click file permissions? or enter directory?
