    You need to CHMOD that directory to 777. With most FTP programs you can just Right Click and then click permissions or chmod and type 777.

    yes they are talking about the directory that the file is needs to be read/write/executable the command "chmod -R 777 phpfmg" is to change to those permissions recursivly (all the files in the directory too) and the directory/file being phpfmg....
