    hey all,
    (couldn't figure out where to put this thread, this seemed like the best place, my aplogies if I'll located)

    I'm using joomla through my host applications area...

    of course I do not want to use the "joomla" logo
    so I created my own logo and tried to do an ftp upload
    but the permissions I cannot change from 664

    I thought by creating a logo and naming it exactly as the template logo
    it would upload, same exact name and extension, but even after repeated attempts to change the permssions
    it always defaults right back to "public unwritable" it's not only unwritable
    but "unchangeable" too

    tried to do what I saw on youtube for others having the same issue
    but it will not accept the upload, others I've seen simply name the logo they create to the same exact as is already on the template and it "uploads" but mine won't?

    any suggestions ?

    thanx!!! hali~! :)

    To which chmod did you tried to change? 777 or 755?
    In any cases your host will help you surely better, as i am sure it has been configured by him.

    at 1st I changed it to 666 but that would default right back,
    then I tried 777 and same thing, it wouldn't take either

    my host says they don't support the apps, only
    provide access to apps

    I wish they did!

    so still not sure how to resolve

    of their own......?

    go to your control panel and try to change the chmod from there , maybe your ftp account doesn't have rights to do that .

    I don't have a "CP" per se, but I don't think ...??

    my host in saying "they don't support" leaves me to believe
    I can't excerise control through my host,...

    and I was looking through filezilla, I don't see any options
    that seems to address "permissions" ???

    I only see (at this point) the ability to address
    permissions in the upload mode, so I'm not aware of a
    "chmod" access option?

    one click joomla installations can cause ftp issues if not configured properly

    i recommend installing a joomla component called xtplorer found here:

    Code:
    http://extensions.joomla.org/extensions/102/details
    its a backend joomla administator ftp component

    download the latest version - should the latest version not work properly uninstall it and try an earlier version, for some reason i have been having issues with the latest version of xtplorer...

    you should be able to simply overwrite the file with xtplorer - its possible that the server when installing joomla for you changed the ownership of the file which can cause ftp issues... in most instances if your having ftp issues xtplorer will be a work around for you... its not joomlas fault its the way your host has configured the one click install...

    hi halifax123. I've tried this changing a joomla logo thing using my customized logo with same file name, size, height, width, and format type. it should always be the same in everything. except the design of course.

    I use to have the same problem. what i did is i also use FTP to rename the logo. ex. yoursite.com/templates/yourtemplate/images/logo.jpg and change it to logox.jpg

    then i refresh the site. usually, the thing that happens is the logo disappear.

    now i uploaded a new logo.jpg, same size, same format and so on... to that same directory. for sure it will be uploaded because there would be no overwriting issues coz we renamed the original logo.jpg to logox.jpg.

    once uploaded. refresh your site.

    NOW HERE'S ANOTHER TRICKY THING!

    sometimes, it will STILL display the original logo even if you've already uploaded a new one. what i do is i clear the cache of my browser and refresh the site. sometimes it appears, sometimes it STILL doesn't.

    my theory is, servers also do caching. so it will take 30 minutes or more to refresh your site before your new logo appears. just give time to it. or try opening it to another browser to see to it.

    well, this post is not about 664 issue. but it's worth a try mate.

    Good tainted!

    Do you still have the issue of the logo or have you gotten it taken care of? Also who is the host company. Most good host companies offer cpanel now. If the host is not giving much support for a one click install program that they have loaded I would look for a new host.

    If you are still having issues PM
