I’m trying to install a gallery program, when I go to configure it…I get these two errors below. What is and how do you chmod?
File config.php in your Gallery mainfolder is not writable by the webserver. – chmod it 777 before proceeding. See documentation for more details.
File .htaccess in your Gallery mainfolder is optional, however some Gallery features will be disabled unless you create an empty file named .htaccess and chmod it to 777 before proceeding. See the documentation for more details

Use an FTP client. I use Filezilla, a open source package. It gives me all the control I need.

Yes, there is a way to use chmod on Gadaddy. You have to login to your SSH account on Godaddy using an SSH client such as Putty. Do a Google search for it and install it on your machine.
Once you connect with Putty you will have a Linux shell prompt where you can do file lists and where you can use the chomd command.
Alternatively, as Glen pointed out, you can use Filezilla or WinSCP (which is the one I use). You can change file attributes via a menu item. Incidentally, WinSCP works closely with Putty (i.e., if you have a WinSCP session open you can click on a menu item and automatically open a Putty session (very handy).

If you have windows based shared hosting like me, you cannot use Putty to connect to your server, and if you try to use FileZIlla or WinSCP to do the CHMOD you get an error saying the command id unknown. It seems that file level permissions is turned off on shared hosting. However, folder level permissions you CAN set.
Go into your file manager in your hosting control panel, select the folder that the flies reside in that you are trying to alter the permissions, then click the Permissions button. Uncheck the Inherit box and select the read and write boxes. Apply the changes and now you can write to your files/folders.

Your information is correct as for changing permissions in the Hosting Control Center for Windows accounts. CHMOD is a function that will only operate in our Linux environments.

@JasonP (or other GoDaddy staff),
When using the GoDaddy File Manager with Windows shared hosting, if you mark a folder (and its children) as writable, does that make it world writable? Should I feel scared about leaving the folder(s) marked as writable? In Linux I would just set permissions to 755 or 644 as needed so files are never world-writable, but the GoDaddy doesn’t display the permissions, it just says “Readable” and “Writable”.
JasonP said 1 year, 5 months ago:
When the Write permission is granted, applications are able to write to the directory. Depending on the access your application needs, you will need to determine whether or not you should set this. Does your application necessitate you being on a Windows server? If not, you may consider switching the operating system on the account to a platform you are more comfortable with.

I just changed over to Linux for no charge so i can edit permissions.
1) From Account Overview select Web Hostings
2) Select Options instead of launch
3) click customize in top left corner
4) change to linux
