I just installed a mod where it makes me CHMod these things to 777, How do I do that?
You can do this via your FTP client or via SSH command line.
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)?
I will be using FTP
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?
chmod = file permissions
