However, it was still confusing for our users, and even now users doesn’t seem to understand how the file permissions work under Website Panel.

2. Now, click on the lock icon of the file you want to edit read/write permissions:

3. Now, here’s the tricky part. A small window will pop up, there it will show you some permission options. Here, check the ‘write’ option. This will not change all files permissions, just the one that was selected. This is where our users get confused, however they don’t need to worry, since other files will keep their read/write permissions:

    It might help if the dialog didn’t make it look as though all file permissions were going to be changed. Maybe if there were a file path included on the pop-up, it wouldn’t be so confusing.

  2. I followed your steps and it didn’t do a thing. The files remain unprotected.
