I know how to change File and Folder Permissions on remote Computer. In fileZilla just right click the file or folder and change the file permission.
avatars/user = 777
In Direct Admin select the file or folder and change permissions at the bottom of the page.
But I how can I do this on my local computer? (Windows 7 and XP)
One thing to note - Windows permissions are vastly different from Unix/Linux permissions. On Unix-based systems (basically everything except Windows), the basic thing is three numbers: the first represents the user, the second the group, and the third the world. In addition, 1 = execute, 2 = write, 4 = read. So to give the owner read/write permission, the owner's group read permission and deny access to everyone else, 640 (6/readwrite = 4/read + 2/write).
Windows is (as usual) far more complicated for no good reason. You have a bunch of users and about 60 different permissions - I haven't checked but the KB article linked by rjraaz should be the right sort of thing. However, if as I suspect you are running a local apache server through WAMP or something, the user running it will be you, so you won't need to enable write permissions for the web server - you already have them.
Thx rjraaz & Fire Boar
There is enough info here to see me right cheers..
My system is Windows. I have managed to get the files working. Believe it or not I uploaded them to my Frihost server and changed permission there. And downloaded them. Not the best, but it worked.
The web App I installed still did'nt work though. Although phpBB did. I really need to get a Linux box up and running.
Ive got WAMP.
XAMPP looks interesting.
I really need to get a proper Linux box going. So I can leave some of these Windows problems behind.
Of course. A Linux box is always useful. When you want something to stand reliably, windows doesn't quite cut it.
Good luck with ur work.
Its a real computer. You use your browser to access it thru your network. Runs Linux (you chose which flavor)
By having this computer I can solve Changing File and Folder Permissions on Local Computer problem too. Which is really a Windows problem.
How about some info on that little box? How much RAM can it take? Processor speed? Nice little toy, I'm sure it's not cheap but if you have money to burn than what the heck!
Virtualization software like VirtualBox is free, and the system installed in it can network with the host operating system--I would spend the money on maxxing out the RAM on your PC so you can allocate a good amount to the guest system.
