Follow the Procedure

1. Log into cPanel as the user in question and locate the file or folder in question.


2. Right-click the file or folder and select 'change permissions.'



3. The permission menu uses the full wording for the permissions, read, write, and execute. For standard '644' that most files, the first section needs 'read, write', and the other two areas only need 'read'. Once this is done select 'Change Permissions.


For Example:

If you are facing a problem all folders make 555 which needs 755, You just update the main folders, and inside all folders making 755 will fix your issue.
