Aside from changing your file permissions via your cPanel, you may also use an FTP client. One of the most popular FTP clients used is FileZilla. This is a free software FTP application with a vast list of features which supports Windows, Mac OS, Linux, and the like.
FileZilla doesn’t just let you change your file permissions, it’ll also let you move files between your local machine and website’s server effortlessly. We will focus on changing File Permissions via FileZilla. Below are the instructions on how to change your file permissions using FileZilla:
Step 3. Locate the file or folder you’d like to change permissions.
Step 4. Right-click on the file or folder and select File permissions…
Step 5. Enter new permission in the Numeric Value field or tick the boxes under Owner, Group, and/or Public permissions. Once done, click OK to save changes.
