    Hi,

    After analysing your situation i can suggest you two methods to overcome your problem.

    1 if you have shell access using ssh go to you home folder and change the ownership by following command

    chown -R user.user folder

    here user= give the name of the user to which you want to change the permission
    folder= the name of the folder if it is inside the home directory or the path to the folder if it is inside in any folder in you home directory

    2 if you have only FTP access then you wont be able to change the ownership of the folder but you can give write , read and execute permission to others by giving following command

    chmod 777 foldername;


    Let me know whether you need any further assistance.
    :)

    ThanQ.
    First methode. No I cannot access to my hosting by shell.
    Second, I try to change CHMODE in FTP client but don't have permission.

    I checked folder that just install a component, it is not my account owner, the owner folder is 99. ;-)

    Hi socheat,
    You can changr the permission through cpanel by following steps.
    1 select the file manager in the cpanel
    2 get the folder you want to change the permission.
    3 select the name of the folder, then you can see many option in the right corner
    4 select the option change permission from the various options listed there
    5 there give the permissions you would like to give to the folder.


    Let me know whether you need any futher assistance.
