Hmm... I need to find out myself. I don't know what is the answer to that question. I'll do some research and get back to you if I find an useful answer. You should email the people at iPage as they probably can help you..
Thank you Chris. I usually use Dreamweaver to upload my files. Can I do it from there?..
Sorry, I wouldn't know. I have NEVER used Dreamweaver. Maybe someone else can answer that for you..
Try File zilla... I'm using that to upload my files... just right-click and go to properties to change the permissions.....
Why use dreamweaver when filezilla is free and reliable?.
As for changing file permissions, the only reliable way is via your web hosts control panel filemanager. Filezilla does it for me, but not everyone...
