Enable write permissions

We recommend disabling write permissions on your web site to keep it secure from hackers. However there will be times that you will need to update your web application, install plugins, themes, etc. In which case, we recommend temporary enabling write permissions.

 


 

From the Administration Control Panel
Mouse over Web & Applications and select Web Sites

 


 

Click on your domain name to access web site settings

 


 

Under Security Settings
Put a check in the Enable Write Permissions box
Click Update
You can now make changes to your web site.

 


 

When you are done, uncheck the same box.
Click Update
This will disable write permissions and will block hackers from putting files onto your site.
