I know this is an easy thing to do for most users. But I realized, there are still more users who has no knowledge on how to change file/folder permissions. So here's Joomla Tip #3 to aid new users on how to change file/folder permission to globally writable. I will give you 3 ways to do this.

First things first:
CHMOD 777 = writable by everyone (this is mostly what you need to do)
CHMOD 755 = writable by owner only

There's more about CHMOD but i'm not gonna cover them.
Search CHMOD from Google to learn more about it.
