Chmod a File

In some cases, you may need to change file permissions on a file, also known as chmod. This allows my servers to write to the files when necessary.

You can use various methods like FTP but for this tutorial, we’ll be using File Manager in cPanel.

Change File Permissions


  1. Login to your cPanel
  2. Click File Manager
  3. Click the name of the file for which you would like to change the permissions.
  4. Select the Change Permissions link at the top right of the page.
  5. Select the permissions you would like to set for the file.
  6. Click Change Permissions
