User Guide wrote: 3.3.2: Group Permissions

This panel will allow you to control a group's access to private forums. It will also let you specify groups as moderators of a forum. If a group is moderator of a forum, then each of the group's members is considered a moderator of that forum.

To edit a group's permissions, select the group name from the dropdown box, and click Look Up Group. To grant moderator access to a group, look in the desired forum's row. In the last dropdown box in the list, choose Is Moderator.
3.3.2.1: Simple Group Permissions

To grant a group access to a private forum using Simple Permissions, Choose Allowed Access in the Simple Permissions for that forum. Choosing Allowed Access is the same as setting all Advanced Group Permissions to ON.

3.3.2.2: Advanced Group Permissions

Advanced Permissions will allow you to grant specific behaviors to a group. In the Advanced Permissions panel, there will be a dropdown box for each Permission type that is set to PRIVATE in the Forum Permissions panel (for more information, see 3.1.2 Forum Permissions). To grant the group a specific PRIVATE permission in a forum, simply set the appropriate dropdown box to ON. To grant all PRIVATE permissions of a forum to a group, use Allowed Access in simple mode.

I don't have the option to set the permissions.
And I do not know why this is or how should what I need to do to fix it.

I think you mean the private forum access. Set the forum permissions to "Private" or similar to have those kind of options appear to you. That's why you don't see them.
No longer supporting phpBB. PM or email me regarding support and you will be ignored. I'm fully done with phpBB and everything.
