Question Directory properties

I have set up php shop and it required command line access which i have I executed the script and everything went OK but when I tried to access the admin foler via the www @ i get a forbidden error.

I know I have to change the attribs of the folder but I don't know the unix command to do this via SSH on port 22 could someone please help.

From your message, I assume you have
terminal access via SSH to your system.
You can use...

chmod(1) to change permission bits
chown(1) to change the owner
chgrp(1) to change the group

check the "man" pages for these commands for
all the details and options.

"putty" is a Win32 SSH client.
Please clarify for me...

I assume you can login to the remote system
using putty and get to the UNIX command line

Does this server belong to you (your company)?

Do you have system admin priviledges?

Assuming you can "putty" into your account,
and you have ownership permissions
on the [webroot]/shophtml/admin directory,
you should be able to execute any of those
commands from the command line prompt.

I'm a bit confused as to what you are asking
so I may not have answered your question. Smilie

Yes to all of your question it is my server etc

I have only startred to use putty and shh access and my knowledge of unix command is limited to those I would use with ftp

I need to know the command to change folder attribs(CHMOD) and anything relevant to this.

Also to add what would "system admin privilages"

Do you know where I could get a comprehensive easy to read list of unix commands.

For some suggestions on books and such,
go to the FAQ's on this forum...

Since it is your own system, then I assume
you have "root" (system admin) priv's.

I'm also assuming that you SSH into your machine
as a "regular" (non-privileged) unix user.
At this point you can "become" the root user

su -

...then supplying root's password when prompted.
From this point you can do...

chmod 755 [webroot]/shophtml/admin

...where I'm assuming [webroot] to be your
path set up in your web server configuration.
I'm also assuming read,write,execute for the
"owner" (the "7" in 755) is sufficient.
