If you are uploading a file that others will view on the Web, you must ensure that Web users will be able to see the pages. Even though people may type the correct Web address to view your site, they will not be able to see the material without permission. The attributes for a file or the folder it is in must be set correctly on the server to give this permission.
Attributes are shown to the far right of the file or folder name (as shown in the right-most column of the following graphic). Use the scroll bar at the bottom of the file window to reveal the attributes column. Again, Web page viewing is enabled by changing the attributes of files and folders within your Web directory on the server:
Files and folders can have three types of users:
|Owner||The user with full rights to all files and directories within a specific server directory space; this user can change file and folder attributes.|
|Group||A select group of users listed by the owner.|
|Other||All other users; users accessing your pages and directories through the Web or the network.|
Files and folders can have the following attributes on the server:
|D||The listing is a directory.|
|R||The file or folder can be read (viewed).|
|W||The file or folder can be written to.|
|X||The folder can be opened to access files (execute); the user can view Web pages in the folder.|
The following settings are recommended to enable you to share your Web pages over the Internet. Verify that that these settings have been applied to your Web folder and all files and folders in it.
