    I’m reinstallling Spell Check. The docs say “be certain that this directory is writeable by the web server process. This usually involves performing a chmod 755 on this directory but some servers are different.” Can you tell me how to do this? Thanks.

    Thanks pdoz, quick question. If I want to do this as easily as possible, could I just delete the related files and reinstall, or would I have the same problem? Any idea? Thanks.

    With the files there where you put them, just change the permissions – no need to delete.

    I don’t know how to change the Permissions. Could you walk me through that? Thanks again.

    How to change permissions is listed step by step on the above site.

    I read about CHMOD in your tutorial and I believe I understand that but I didn’t see where is shows how one sets it. Did I overlook something?

    Now go back to http://www.tamba2.org.uk/wordpress/ftp/ and follow the links for any of the FTP clients listed there.

    I use WS_ftp Pro. I don’t see it listed. Is there one listed that’s similar?

    Assuming that you’re on a PC, I recommend using FileZilla: http://filezilla.sourceforge.net/

    Once you have it, stop by this guide: http://www.tamba2.org.uk/wordpress/FileZilla/

    In ws ftp pro, right click on the file you want to chmod. At the bottom you’ll see “properties”. Click on that. That’s where you change permissions.

    I don’t see where I set the 755 chmod. Help. Thanks.

    don’t look for chmod in ws http://ftp…just look for permission. select the checkboxes/toggles so that all 3 Read, 3 Execute, and User has Write (should be 7 selected in total).

    I made those changes and I got this error message:
    FATAL: The temporary directory you specified is not writeable from the Apache task. Either select a different temporary directory (like “/tmp”) or make the directory you specified writable by the Apache task (chmod 755 the directory).

    Your thoughts?

    hmmm…i’m no Apache/Unix geek so i can tell you specifically what the error means, but are you sure you have the rights to change directory/file permissions? Or it may be related to the fact that you don’t have, or can’t write, to the temp directory. Try googling it…
