    CHMOD problem... please help

    I'm trying to change the permission settings on a search script I'm trying to install. I'm getting this error message, and have absolutely no idea what's going on (I'm using CuteFTP)...

    [search.pl]
    COMMAND:> SITE CHMOD 755 search.pl
    501 SITE option not supported.

    Thanks for your help!

    Hi dsainternet,

    If this is a *nix server, try to SSH/Telnet in and chmod the file. If it's a windows server, you can't chmod the file.

    Regards,
    Charlie

    CUTE ftp lets you change permissions by just right clicking on the file and choosing permissions (or properties or something..)

    I think it lets you enter raw commands as well

    just type in "chmod <mode> <filename>"

    Instead of

    SITE CHMOD 755 search.pl

    use just

    chmod 755 search.pl

    Make sure you are in the directory where search.pl resides.
