If you've used the Automatic Windows Installer to install DLGuard v3 then all you need to do is the following:

- After installation is complete, change your "admin" folder's file permissions to CHMOD 755

That's all!



If you're installing DLGuard v3 manually then you'll need to set the file permissions BEFORE installation:

- Before starting, make sure you change your "admin" folder to CHMOD 777

- Then set all the files INSIDE the "admin/data" folder to CHMOD 666

Once your installation is complete, simply set the "admin" folder back to CHMOD 755.



To change file permission settings:

Log in to your website using your FTP software.

Each FTP software application is slightly different, however most operate similar to this:

Right-click on the file you want to change the permissions of. There should be an option that says something like "Set Permissions", "Change File Attributes", or "Properties". Click on this.

You will see a series of tick boxes, and maybe a box that allows you to type in the CHMOD value itself as listed in the DLGuard instructions.

So for example, if you're setting a data file to "CHMOD 666", simply type in "666" into the box and then click okay.

If you don't have a box that allows you to input a value, then these are the common tickbox settings:

CHMOD 666: All read, All write, None execute

CHMOD 777: All read, All write, All execute

CHMOD 755: All read, Owner write, All execute

* When changing data file permissions to CHMOD 666, please note that you need to change the files INSIDE the data folder to CHMOD 666, NOT the folder itself!
