Topic: Unable to change permissions (777)
I downloaded SimpleViewer b/c I loved the way it looked on a friend's site. I am fairly new to html programming, but I have spent two hours on this and really given it a good faith effort. Any help would be much appreciated.
I am unable to alter the permissions (read/write/execute) using either my FTP software (Fetch, on a Mac) or from within my server administration panel (DailyRazor). When I try using Fetch, I’m only given the option to change permissions when/if I select more than one file/folder at once. When I select only one file or folder, the “change permissions” window simply does not appear. When I select more than one, I am able to type in 777 under Unix equivalent (which then checks all of the permission boxes for me), but when I click "apply," I get the following error message from my FTP software:
“Fetch could not set permissions for “gallery.xml” because the FTP server sent an unexpected response. Check the Fetch Transcript window for more information. Server responded: “SITE CHMOD 777 gallery.xml”: command not understood”
From within my server administration panel, I'm able to set all permissions for the necessary files to read/write/execute, but every time I click "apply" and then go back into the folder, it has automatically reverted back to the settings that were there a minute earlier. In other words, no "write" permission.
I'd really love to be able to use this software, and I'm about to give up. Any advice would be welcome.
