    When I try to set the permissions on my CGI files, I get an error message when I hit OK that says "Server response: Command 'SITE' not implemented." What does this mean, and can anyone help me get rid of it?

    Not all servers support the "SITE CHMOD" command, which is what Fetch (and other FTP clients) use to change file permissions. In that case you have to login to the server with a terminal program to change the file permissions. You can contact your web hosting provider to find out the details for your server (and to ask them to support SITE CHMOD as a convenience to their customers).

    Thanks,

    Thank you. That explains a lot. One more question, though: what is a terminal program? I'm not familiar with the term.

    A terminal program (or terminal emulator) is a program that lets you type commands to a remote computer and view text responses. It recreates the way computers were used before they had graphic displays with menus, buttons, etc. Mac OS X has a built-in terminal program named "Terminal" in the Utilities folder in the Applications folder. MacSSH is a popular terminal program for Mac OS 9 (it can be found at http://www.macssh.com).

    You should ask your web service provider what program they would recommend for editing permissions.

    Thanks,
