When you upload web content through File Manager or FTP, your control panel 
automatically sets the appropriate access permissions for files and directories. 
The permissions are represented as three sets of symbols, for example, 'rwx rwx 
r--'. The first set tells what the owner of the file or directory can do with it; the 
second tells what the user group, the file or directory belongs to, can do with the 
file or directory; the third set indicates what other users (the rest of the world, i.e. 
Internet users visiting a site) can do with the file or directory. R means the 
permission to read the file or directory, W means the permission to write to the file 
or directory, and X means the permission to execute the file or look inside the 
directory. To modify permissions for a file or directory, in the Permissions column, 
click the respective hyperlink representing the set of permissions. Modify the 
permissions as desired and click OK. To edit the source code of a file, click . To 
edit the Web page in the built-in visual editor (available only to users of Microsoft 
Internet Explorer), click . When editing an HTML file, Plesk opens internal 
WYSIWYG editor by default. If you want to edit the source code of the HTML file, 
click HTML. To return back to WYSIWYG mode, click Design. To view the file, click . 
To rename a file or directory, click . Type in a new name and click OK.
To copy or move a file or directory to another location, select the required file or 
directory using the appropriate check box, and click Copy/Move. Specify the 
destination for the file or directory to be copied or renamed to, then click Copy to 
copy, or Move to move it. To update the file or directory creation date, click Touch. 
The time stamp will be updated with the current local time. To remove a file or 
directory, select the corresponding check box, and click Remove Selected. 
Confirm removal and click OK.
