I would like to know the answer too. Anyone here know what is the answer to your question. I'll do some research and get back to you if I got an good answer. You should email the people at iPage as they probably could give you an answer..
Thanks for the help Chris..
I changed both of those but I still get the same warning message. Any other idea?..
If this error persists, it can ONLY be that the file is still writable. I don't believe there is any other solution to this..
What is the iPage website URL ? .
Are you sure you changed the permissions of these files on the server? How did you go about doing it?..
You need to try permissions in this order until the warning disappears:.
FTP usually doesn't work at this. Most people have to login to their Webhost's cPanel and do it there..
Not all cPanels are created equal so if you can't find the part to change permissions seek support from your Host..
Also be aware that permissions less than 644 make the file "read only" (even to you)..
All this means is that in the future if you want to edit the file you'll need to change the permissions to 644 before making any edits...
Tip: Cute FTP and FileZilla DO Change file permissions without problem..
Never used an FTP that didn't....but, I know for sure those two work well..
Cpanel, ummmmm......never had a real use for it..........lol.
Thanks everyone for your quick information..
I am using WS FTP Pro and after right clicking and setting the permissions to 444 it's all good now...
I just remembered reading here somewhere to have those two files set as low as possible (for tighter security). So I took it to 400 and the iPage site appears to be still working..

If you look at posts about this, it runs about 50 to one in favor of cPanel..
But the OP here was one of the "lucky ones" and FTP worked for him...
