FileZilla is a popular and feature-rich FTP/SFTP program. Among its many features is the ability to change the permissions of a remote file or directory, such as read, write, and execute permissions. In this guide, we’ll show you how to do that.
1. Connect to the remote host and locate the file or folder whose permissions you wish to change.
2. Right click on the file and click “File permissions…”
3. From this menu, you can change the read, write, and execute file permissions for owner, group, and public.
4. When you’re done, just hit OK and the changes will be saved.
FileZilla makes it easy to edit permissions by giving an option to check individual boxes for file permissions or enter a numeric value.
