I recently purchased a web hosting plan with Godaddy. They use a program called cPanel to host the specified website (This is a Linux based machine). I recently added my website up to the file manager, but found I needed to change the document root. I got SSH working and went to the website directory folder and attempted to modify the root directory of my website. Upon completion of this I saved the file, but was met with a Permission Denied error. I did some more reading into how to change the file permissions to allow me to do so and have came up empty handed.
Thank you for your time
