    I'm sure there are a few IT masters...

    I'm an admin of a webpage of local photogs society. the page runs on Mambo. (www.mamboserver.com) I added a component - zoom media gallery. but when I change chmods on 777 I get the message "Cannot change remote attributes" ... the same situation is when I upload a new folder there... Anybody uses Mambo here? or Zoom gallery on Joomla?

    P.S

    I know... there's thesupportforum. ... but... maybe here I'll start first :)

    Chances are it's server side and you're not allowed to. Try chmod 755 or check the configuration.php for incorrect settings ;)

    I agree. That's a pretty dangerous permission to leave a file at. Anyone who manages to change it's contents would then be able to execute what they've written, since you've given everyone read, write, and execute persmission.

    If you are setting up new software and it needs temorary write access to a config file, try 666. But make sure you set it back to 644 afterwards. What kind of file is it?

    And the software needs to be able to add albums in there? Did you try 666? That's read and write without the execute. Did the instructions say you needed 777?

    double check the paths and the settings in the configuration file. I should have said, if you manage to get it into 777, put it back afterwards! This might be a mambo thing actually, RTFM.
