Joomla files can’t be deleted or I can’t change Permissions

You created a joomla site, then wanted to change the template or add a new Mod and the new folder you just uploaded seems to have a life of it’s own, you cant edit a file in it, or change a file permission and you cant even delete the ugly folder!

This is a regular problem with joomla, we had customers who when asking for a refund tell us that our servers are useless because they don’t work with joomla… Now the solution is simple, open the
configuration.php and edit the part about ftp:

var $ftp_enable = ‘1’;
var $ftp_host = ‘main account domain’;
var $ftp_port = ’21’;
var $ftp_user = ‘cpanel username’;
var $ftp_pass = ‘cpanel password’;
var $ftp_root = ‘/’;

This at least will solve future problems not sure for files you already
uploaded, check if there is a problem email us and we will fix the problem folder.
