I need to change the permissions of a folder I am using in my web site which is part of a Word Press Blog.

I'm thinking that I can right-click the folder and change properties from there, but I cannot find "Permissions" anywhere ...

I'm using an old version of Dreamweaver MX 6.0 - can anyone advise how I can do this?

You should be able to change permissions through the control panel of your hosting. If not, maybe download filezilla; http://filezilla-project.org/ because that has a far easier folder manager than DW.

Probably not a job for Dreamweaver and I'm not sure about your version but in newer versions you can connect to the server and right+click on the file or folder whose permissions you want to change and select the Set Permissions… option.

Thanks for the replies. My version of Dreamweaver does not show the permissions when right-cliking on a folder, but I bellieve the current version does work. I downloaded the FTP software, and it worked fine, thanks for the tip.

I use FireFTP and a right click on the file in the right window gives access to all permissions through "properties".
