Hmm... I need to find out myself. I don't know what is the right answer. I'll do some research and get back to you if I discover an decent answer. You should email the people at iPage as they probably can answer it..
I have windows xp, i've put oscommerce on my own host, but I don't know how and where to use chmod......
Its very simple to change the permissions. You can either do it using your FTP client (but note that not all FTP clients suport this) by right clicking on the file and selecting the appropiate permissions..
Alternatively your host company may provide you with a file manager (mine does) and if you enter that, it should be straight forwad as to what to do..
Incase if you don't know about CHMOD, each number represents a different level of access, and theres three levels of access available..
0 = no permissions.
3= Execute and Write.
5= Execute and read.
6= Write and read.
7= Write, execute and read.
So if you have a 755 it means.
The owner can Write, execute and read, the group can Execute and read and so can the public..
Hope that helps..
Where can I do it in windows xp?.
Or which ftp client gives me this option (changing permission)?..
You can't do it in XP I'm afraid..
What FTP client are you using at the moment? I currently use Dreamweaver, which lacks CHMOD so use my host's file manager..
Ok, here are my problems I can read on the main page:.

What to do to get rid of this problems?..

Change the last line in the following files.
To change the file permission on windows xp right click file, select properties and clear the check box for read only..
I have problem with tmp catalog.
I've put it into my main ditectory (named temp and second named tmp).
Is it good place for it?.
Second thing, i've found that this catalog should have chmod 777.
I was trying to execute this command at msdos, but it does not work.
Where to execute this command?..
1) Yes that'll do.
2)You can change your permissions with either your FTP client or Filemanager provided by your host...
