Newbie: How to set file permissions?
Hi, I figured I need to learn how to do this instead of submitting a support ticket.
My problem is that I get a 404 not found error when clicking the image link in my wysiwyg editor.
I've read that this is a permission setting.
Can someone tell me where to go and how to change this setting.
Found this in the knowledgebase. Posting it here incase someone needs it:
In order to change the permission of a file, the first thing you need to do is to login to your cPanel. From the main page, please select the File Manger icon. A new window will open, and the files and folders, contained in your web space will be listed in alphabetical order.
To change a file's permissions, please click on the file name. In the top right corner of the page a list of options will appear. When you click the Change Permissions link, this list will be substituted with a table with 9 checkboxes.
Checking/unchecking each of the boxes will allow/disallow a single user or a group to do one of the tree actions possible – read (view) a file, write (modify), or execute it. To apply any modifications you need to click the Change button.
Changing the permission status will affect the number at the bottom of the table. If you would like to, you can also set the numbers by directly replacing them with the desired values. Please click the Change button to save your settings.
Upon completing the operation, cPanel will show a message similar to the one below to confirm changes have been saved.
Set permissions on file.txt -> 0644
The message contains the name of the file that has been modified, the new permission set, and the system path on the hosting server.
SiteGround recommends that you do not change file permissions to 777 unless this is required for scripts already installed to function properly.
Still not working
Ok I've tried to change the permissions but I'm still getting the 404 error.
The best thing to do in your case would be to contact the technical support. However, you can post the link here, so we can see if it is working or not.
