    Hi all,

    This is for a Windows2003Server. I am trying to change the permissions on an Apache webfolder. It has the "read only" checked off. I keep trying to remove the check, and it keeps putting it back in.

    How can I change this permanently?

    Thanks

    Heeter

    Make a copy of the folder, then change the Attributes to THAT folder. If that works, simply put it in place of the hidden one, keeping the names identical.

    I am assuming the permissions set is okay?
    You do know that it only applies to files inside the folder? A folder cant be read only, just the files I am sure as you use permissions to control folders. There is a difference between a greyed check and a white backgrounded check too.
