for "FILE" folder you must change permission/CHMOD to be 555
login to your root using ftp or webpanel.

I always have this on 755. Does it needs to be on 555 or is 755 ok too.

Ok, gonna try.

But how is the caching and all other writings will be succeed. As it has to write in that folder. right? Or has this nothing to do with the system to be able to write in there.
