Most FTP clients have a "right click" option built in. When you FTP in to your webserver "right click" your digitaldivasdesigns.com/photopost/data folder. There should be an option to use CHMOD, set the value to 777. (When executed, the command can change file system modes of the data directory.)
Some FTP clients may not "right click". There should be an optin in the menus of the ftp program after you hi-light the data folder.
