Hi, I currently have the exact sam problem but I'm unsure of exactly what your solution means? Which file attributes need changing?

If the file access permissions are not set correctly, the web server will not be allowed to read the files. If your host is Linux- or Unix-based, these are expressed as numbers, and can usually be manipulated by your FTP program. Try "right clicking" on a file in the FTP browser, and selecting "Properties". Depending upon your FTP program, the attributes may be listed by number, or check boxes, sometimes both.
