Error: Please check for sufficient write file permissions
Your Magento folder does not have sufficient write permissions, which this web based downloader requires.

If you wish to proceed downloading Magento packages online, please set all Magento folders to have writable permission for the web server user (example: apache) and press the “Refresh” button to try again.

what i have to do!? i am reading the forum, i dont know can i change permissions via SSH, if i connect with my hosting provider and they change permissions, is it safe? could everyone see my folders!?
