Hi I have just tried to get this working. I have access to my linux hosting control panel. So i can change permissions, but my hosting company does not allow the settings you have stated in the set instructions. Please see message below in response to what I sent them.

I only build websites using Joomla open source CMS so can this get working?

Thanks for contacting us.

777 permissions are not allowed on our servers and scripting will not execute. Our servers are intentionally configured to prevent CHMOD permissions of 777 from being used as it is inherently insecure and no modern software package should ever need to use this any longer. If the developer states that you have to set 777 to install or run the software, then try 755 and 99% of the time this is fine.

You should only set and use the following permissions ->

Directories : 711 or 755
HTML/PHP/ASP files : 644
CGI/Perl files : 755
Any other file type (images, audio/video, text files, pdfs, etc) : 644
