    Hi, I am trying to access my root folder and everytime I click on it, this error message pops up. I have tried to change the "set permissions" but I don't believe that I did it right. Any suggestions?

    thanks,

    john

    Your account does not have permission to access the /root directory on the server, and there shouldn't be any reason why you'd have to go there. The "root" of your website should be in the directory where you go when you are first connected -- /home/johncollins.
