I am developing a website hosted locally on a Mac and I am having trouble with directory permissions.
I have exhausted my normal options for solving the problem and the remaining solution I can think of is to try setting permissions in the terminal. I've never used the terminal seriously and I hoping someone could give me directions to do this.
What I need to do:
Direct terminal to hard-drive/Applications/MAMP/htdocs/mysite/myfolder/mysubfolder
( Ls -l doesn't return Applications which is confusing).
Set the permissions there to the terminal version of 777
If someone could guide me though that, I'll scribble it down and never forget it!
oliver-nourishs-mac-mini:/ oliver$ cd Applications/MAMP/htdocs/barbadoslettings oliver-nourishs-mac-mini:barbadoslettings oliver$ chmod 777 ./ oliver-nourishs-mac-mini:barbadoslettings oliver$ cd images oliver-nourishs-mac-mini:images oliver$ chmod 777 ./ oliver-nourishs-mac-mini:images oliver$ cd carhire oliver-nourishs-mac-mini:carhire oliver$ chmod 777 ./ oliver-nourishs-mac-mini:carhire oliver$
in relation to the original answer, but my permissions still seem stuck.
