hi everyone,
Have the following message on my web site after upgrade-"A file permissions error has occurred. Please check the permissions on the script and the directory it is in and try again.”
Any hints or help.
Thanks in advance

If you have SSH access, try to run these commands from your Magento root directory:

find . -type d -exec chmod 755 {} \;
find . -type f -exec chmod 644 {} \;

Depending on your FTP client, you might be able to chmod files and folders recursively, however, it will take a long time. What the above commands do is basically reset the permissions on all files to 644 and directories to 755.
