Setting Directory Permissions with Linux Hosting Accounts
You can set different directory permissions for each of the directories in your Linux Shared Hosting account. In this way, you can control who has access to your files and what actions they can perform on files within those directories. For more information, see Which permissions can my Linux hosting account use?
To Set Permissions with Your Linux Hosting Account
- Log in to your Account Manager.
- Click Web Hosting.
Click one of the following, based on the type of hosting you have. You can tell this by the second word in your hosting's description beneath your hosting account's domain name, e.g. Deluxe Web correlates to Web/Classic (Hosting Control Panel).
- Next to the hosting account you want to use, click Launch.
- From the Files & FTP menu, select FTP File Manager.
- Navigate to the files or directory whose permissions you want to modify, and then click Privacy or Permissions.
If the option is available, you can also expand the Advanced Permissions section or click Advanced.
