[How-To] Changing directory permissions from cPanel

This is not a difficult task but people often don’t know what directory permissions are. While we need not go into depth, just know 0755 is the recommended setting for all directories.

For changing a directories permission from cPanel, follow the following steps:

  • Login to your cPanel.
  • Find File Manager and click on it.
  • Select web root and click on Go.
  • Now place a check in the checkbox next to the directory you want to change the permission of.
  • Click on Change Permissions.
  • And select 755 in the box.
  • Finally, click on Change Permissions.

You’re done.

This would change the permission of selected directory to 755.

Cheers!
