    Use ssh to chmod 750 and set permission to username:nobody

    Hi :),

    Go in to the File Manager >> Home Directory >> click on public_html (i.e. select public_html) , you will see the option Change Permissions is enabled.

    Please check attached screenshot.

    Hello,

    Yes, as mentioned, click on the home directory on the directory tree to the left, and then click on the public_html directory in the directory listing on the right.

    Thank you.
