While managing a website, it is important to ensure that all permissions are set correctly. If you use cPanel, you can easily set the permissions of your directories in the settings.
But, if you want to set file permissions directly through Filezilla, you can change them using the Filezilla interface. For a detailed guide on changing file permissions using Filezilla, refer to our article on how to change file permissions using Filezilla.
