sudo chmod -R g-w,o-w /home/***/public_html/install"
changes the directory mode , BUT because of
I am on a VPS. Hosted by Planethoster.
Pls stop using it, until you know how to use it.

I know, it sounds strange, but everything "non managed" for people which aren't knowing what they're doing is dangerous and can be really expensive, once your machine stops, your pages are offline and you need an real pro to fix it...!
(i know what i'm talking about, it happened to me some years ago ... :(

5.0 I think, it wasn't outdated. Maybe my host made something I didn't know.
