Set CHMOD 777 to all files in one shot
What is CHMOD?
CHMOD refers to setting the access privledges for a file. We normally modify it when dealing with add-on domain and WP plugins. It’s kind of fussy if we type CHMOD 777 filename for each file and what if we have 100 files?
These are the steps to show you how to CHMOD a folder and its contained files via ftp:
1. Run ftp software, then log into web server.
2. Browse to the folder that you would like to set it to CHMOD 777. Right click the folder and select “Attributes (CHMOD) Ctrl+O”.
3. In the permissions text field, type in “777″.
4. Check “Apply changes to all subfolders and files”
CHMOD vs .htaccess
The wrong concept of many people having is modify .htaccess instead of chmod a folder for a writable folder. Therefore, if you still can write a sitemap by using WP sitemap plugin, try to chmod your folder with steps above.
