    I am playing around with a script for one of my sites - how do I "Chmod all files to 755"??

    I've searched and found a way using "telnet"??

    I use Frontpage and GoDaddy's MySQL Database.

    FREE Advertising on the new site if you can help me with it!!

    Hi Kim.

    So you don't have shell access (telnet or ssh) to your server?

    You can do this with FTP, but your FTP client needs to support it. The DOS command line FTP doesn't. Frontpage may do this, but it's been years since I've used that.

    If you have something like CuteFTP, you can usually do a CHMOD. It may be named something like "change file attributes".

    If you cannot put in 755 for the command, the 755 means the following (this will make sense if you find it in the FTP software):

    First digit 7: Owner Permissions
    Read on
    Write on
    Execute on

    Second digit 5: Group permissions
    Read on
    Write off
    Execute on

    Third digit 5: Public permissions
    Read on
    Write off
    Execute on

    Hope this helps. If you can't get it, IM me tomorrow and I'll help live (only because you're one of my favorite affiliates/AM's ).

    not sure about how to do it through an FTP program, but if you have command line access you can just do:

    chmod -R 755 /directory

    If it is your own server, you can use Webmin to remotely-control it. That's the only way I survive running the Uni* clone FreeBSD.

    Chmod is available there.

    you are correct... you have problems...

    let's start with your using frontpage and godaddy hosting....

    neither are cgi (perl) friendly...

    not to mention you dont know what it means to chmod (set permissions) on a script.

    start by downloand a "real" html editing program and "wsftp" it's an fto client

    dont forget to upload you script to the server in ASCII mode not binary... because funny things happen to a perl scripts when they are uploaded in binary mode... causing them not to run... you usually will get a 500 error message when you try to run the script.

    then move your website to a real hosting company...


    Joe

    And, that's the bottom line because it's my2cents!

    You could open your ftp site in Internet Explorer and right click on the file you want to change permissions for, select 'properties', and tick the relevant boxes according to Scott's info above.
