    You'd do better to ask your host for assistance with this one. Short of that, try setting the directories in question to permissions of 755 first, and if that's no good, try 777. Using your FTP client you should be able to simply right click the directory and choose properties to find the CHMOD settings.

    If you're using cPanel's File Manager, click on the directory one time, and then look at top of page for the icon titled "Change Permissions" click that, type in 755 and save.

    Those directories need to be "writable" this should take care of that.

    This is not actually related to cPanel though, so your host should be the one to explain this sort of thing to you.


    GL!

    I don't use FileZilla so no real help there without spending a bit more time on it. Try using the File Manager in your cPanel as mentioned though, that'll work.

    If that does not work as well, it might be that you do not actually own the files. In that case, you'll need to speak to your host to have them CHOWN-ed to you so that you can manipulate them yourself.
