    Chmod

    does anyone know what CHMOD means?
    and 777 and 735?

    this is what I'm stuck on "CHMOD all the following files and directories to 777"

    Did at any point in time a simple search for “chmod” come to your mind? There are millions of sources that 1) explain what chmod is and 2) how to do it.

    For example in Filezilla you right click the file and choose “File Attributes”, and there you just check the appropriate boxes.

    chmod => Change Mode, change the access permision of one or more file, directory.
    the numbers are the values for owner group and all
    each value give the read write and execute rights.
    777 => owner 7, group 7, all 7 ( usualy bad idea )
    735 => owner 7, group 3, all 5
    1 - execute
    2 - write
    4 - read
    777 => read + write + execute for owner, group and all
    735 => 7 read + write + execute for owner
    3 write + execute for group
    5 read + execute for all

    regards
