Step 3 - Setting File Permissions

For detailed instructions, please view YaBB Codex Installation Guide.

An example 755 chmod setting in CuteFTP 7.0 ProfessionalAfter you have completed the section of this guide titled "Step 2 - Uploading," you must now set the file permissions on the files listed in the table below. Since this is a Linux/*nix function, Windows server users will not be able to do this. On a Windows/NT server, however, you will need to give the data folders (those specified to be chmod 777) full read/write permissions. On Windows servers, you will probably need to contact your web host's support department and request that these permissions be set for you.

If you do not understand what chmod is or how to do it, please view the YaBB Codex Chmod Tutorial
