    I have tried changing permissions for about eveything in my wordpress folders, but I still can't edit theme or plugins. Also codeforged's Headline Images plugin does not work. The plugin gives the error:

    FATAL: The directory you specified to cache the image files is not writeable from the Apache task. Either select a different directory or make the directory you specified writable by the Apache task (chmod 755 the directory).

    I am thinking it has something to do with apache ... ? or some weird permissions thing. I've tried searching, and I've found nothing.

    I have used my cpanel X, and a online FTP site called net2ftp (net2ftp.com)

    I think net2ftp is a phenomenally bad idea. Extremely bad.

    Filezilla is what you need - http://www.tamba2.org.uk/wordpress/FileZilla/

    I am at college. My college has a firewall that is supposed to let me make ftp connections, but doesn't. net2ftp is pretty much all I can use. I also have a mac, filezilla won't work.

    Anyways, net2ftp isn't the problem. I have a different site I use wordpress on, everything works, and I used net2ftp.
