How to make a file writeable (chmod 777)

Our system requires that the content files and directories are set to be writable (chmod 777) and this guide will help you.


  1. Connect to your web server with your telnet software
  2. Change directory with cd. Navigate to the /members/content folder 
  3. Type chmod 777 * to change mode for all files in that directory. If you only want to change mode for a special type of file your can use chmod 777 *.txt *.dat or chmod 777 filename.ext.

In this example we\'re going to use WS FTP, but you can use any other FTP software that support chmod UNIX.

  1. Connect to your server and navigate to the /members/content folder
  2. Select the folder and right click on it
  3. Select Chmod UNIX in the menu
  4. Check the checkboxes as described on the picture below
