Uploading files to my directory

OK, I want to allow voltrank to use my site for one way linking for seo.

In order to do this voltranks has asked me to downlaod their files/script, unzip and upload to my directory. So I unzipped them to my file manager. Voltranks exact instructions are below.

(Start by downloading the ZIP file. Unpack it and upload the files to your web server. It is essential that you put them into the main directory.)

So upload to my file manager? Right?

It then gives me thses instructions, and I'm stuck

(Now set the proper permissions for these three files. Without it we won't be able to publish ads to your website.)

Anyone help me out here??

Its such a pity we dont have an ftp address as voltranks will do this for me but they need my ftp server addresss, and I understand I dont have an ftp address with yola for my site

Hope this plea makes sense

Hello Removal Man Hull,

This may or may not work. It would depend on the file types that need to be addressed.

You my like to list the files with their types here and others can possibly advise you if and how to get this going.

As you have stated FTP is not an option with Yola so the files must be uploaded into your file manager with the tool available. The area "resources" may also not be considered the "main directory" so once again this will need to be looked at if it doesn't work out initially.

I hope that you can get it working and know that others here will try and help.

Unfortunately, it is not possible to upload a file into the root directory of your site. If that is what voltranks is asking of you, please send a request to their support team asking if there is another option for you.

If you would like to forward me their answer to you, I can let you know if any other options they give you are possible.
