I am currently running Mandriva free and I have installed XAMPP on my system I have tried to access a folder that I have placed on my server and it is saying that I have forbidden access to it
drwxrwxr-x 5 root root 4096 Jul 16 08:52 online/
that is what I currently have for the file permission and I believe that I need to change the 5 to a 1
Am I right?
and if so can someone please tell me how to change it
otherwise can someone tell me what I must do to access the folder?
thanks in advance
Please ignore this now I have rectified the problem
I done it by entering
chown -R root /online
thanks all those who viewed the problem
For next time ...
Next time you can try the chmod command like
This would give all write permission (including you ;-))
chmod a+w directory_name
for other options
