I'm trying to set up a blog database on my hosted site and as usual don't know nearly enough about what I'm doing. I'm just kinda picking things up as they become necessary. An early stumbling block is that I need to change the permissions of a few folder by "chmod +w" ing them. I can't figure out where i would run such a command though and so far google hasn't really been very helpful. any help would be much appreciated.
For my company, we're using a on-the-server search engine to let customers search our site. We're using an internal one to keep them on our site while they search. We've been using ht://dig but I'm not really pleased with the results.
