Setting Permissions On Linux/cPanel

There are 2 methods for adjusting your file and directory permissions.

  1. First method that can be used is the FileManager from cPanel.
    When you select the file or directory you can click the key icon at the top for changing permissions.
  2. Second method is to use a FTP client like FileZilla.
    Highlight the file and choose the change permission option.
    If an option is not listed right click the file and select file permissions.
