    Absolute noob here.

    Trying to install vBulliten. And i can't make a new folder called "forum" because it's 755 instead of 777.

    How do i change these? As it says i don't have permission to do it through cPanel.

    Is PHP running as user nobody? If so, it may be an ownership issue rather than a permissions issue.

    It is recommended that PHP run in a SuPHP or SuExec environment.

    If you do not have root access to the server, you will be unable to resolve this issue yourself. In that scenario, contact your hosting provider.

    You should contact your web hosting company then and ask them. cPanel is the software that the server is running that manages your hosting account.

    Your web host company will know how the server is set up and will be able to answer your questions.
