    Chmod your directory. you can do a search on google for this for more info, and looking in your ftp client's help documentation would probably explain clearly.

    The basics are:

    When you are in your ftp program, there is a way to change the permission of a directory. Usually, you can right-click on the folder icon, and then go to properties/chmod. Under properties at the bottom is three lists: "Owners", "Group", "Public". and under each is "Read", "Write", "Execute". Make sure that each is checked on all three groups. or if there is only a box with a three-digit number in it, possibly labeled "Permissions", make sure that it says "777".

    Do this on all the directories that are listed in the warning.
