Hello all and TY in advance. I have been in touch with myhosting about a dozens times over the last few days and I get a serious difference in knowledge when it comes to Joomla related problems and to this point I have had knowone solve my problem. I have made several Joomla sites on another server with absolutely no problems. I have been asked to help a family member make a Joomla site for them on this server. I have created the sub domain and installed Joomla as per their wiki documentation. It all goes as indicated and I can enter my admin section normally. Problem is I cannot install anything at all (no templates, components, modules...). I get errors everytime. I have changed all folder permissions to 755 and all files to 644. Some of the phone support has said that the permissions need to be 777 and 666 respectively. Surely this is not the case for typical installation of components, modules...is it? This is a serious safety concern. If it can't be allowed with 755 and 644 then Joomla is not the owner of these files/folders. Is my thinking wrong in this matter? I just can't seem to understand why there are problems with the install after following the given instructions.
