Ask your host about this as if your on Linux you should be able to chmod on ftp fine.

it´s windows server but they say that i have premissions to change it anyway, but i cant?
i have another domain on that server and on that one i can change the premissions.

If your on windows then permissions can only be changed on the backend not through ftp client

Check your control panel to see if you have such a backend utility. A chmod command is simply not recognised in windows

i have read/write premissions on my rootfolder so i must(?) have premissions to everything in it?

read write is fine for photopost main folder etc. The data and uploads folders must be read write execute for file uploads to work

the problem is that i cant install photopost at all, this is what i get when i go to install:

You need to work with your host


That is the permissions needed. Your scripts are not even accessible to the web so there is no way the directory is read write that I see if you get a message such as that

problem solved, the problem was with my host, they had some setting wron g for my account.
now i get this mess:
Notice: Undefined variable: argv in g:\home\jaktbilder.se\wwwroot\pp\index.php on line 15
-what does "argv" means?
