    Ok, I'm not really that stupid, but this is the first time I have done something like this, so I'm a little nervous.:confused:

    After reading the installation instructions, the one thing that I am not sure how to do is where it tells me how to change the permissions. How do I run a command from my FTP?

    I do know that in my FTP, if I right click on a folder and look at the properties, I can change the chmod right there. Is that the same thing as running the command?

    Oh, and how do I do the patch? Does it just copy over certain files?
    And last one... should I create a different folder to upload it into? Does it matter? what do you recommend? or is it just personal preference?

    Hello jsgpsy,
    Copy files in a necessary directory (ex. public_html)
    In a FTP browser (ex. TOTALCMD) in command line enter chmod 777 tmp, chmod 777 backup ..... OR (if you use Vdeck) in Vdeck Panel choose Host Manager->File Manager-> Opposite to each file and a directory you can see numbers designating chmod. Just click for change OR(if you use Cpanel) in Cpanel -> File Manager -> Click on a necessary file or a directory and in a right frame choose -> Change Permissions.
    For application of patch just replace files.

    Thanks for the reply!

    I went ahead and just did it, figured I would learn if anything didn't go quite right, but so far so good. :yahoo: Fingers crossed!

    Welcome to our support forums, jsgypsy
    Just a little note about a patch. There is a file in language directory. You should copy lines from it to your language file. You should not copy it to your language directory.
