When you upload web content through File Manager or FTP,
your control panel automatically sets the appropriate access permissions for
files and directories. The permissions are represented as three sets of symbols,
for example, 'rwx rwx r--'. The first set tells what the owner of the file or
directory can do with it; the second tells what the user group, the file or
directory belongs to, can do with the file or directory; the third set indicates
what other users (the rest of the world, i.e. Internet users visiting a site)
can do with the file or directory. R means the permission to read the file or
directory, W means the permission to write to the file or directory, and X means
the permission to execute the file or look inside the directory.

Permissions column, click the respective
