Madcap: Welcome - as you are new here you might want to nip down to the Reception Room (link in my sig) I hear Master Suho is running induction classes as we speak.

I'll move this over to server-side scripting where it will feel more at home

I've done this many times through WS FTP, if the server is a unix/linux box you should be able to do it by chmod through your ftp-prog. If its a Winblows server I suppose it's different since that doesn't support chmod.

I don't remember the actual setting for writable, but take a look here http://www.wdvl.com/Internet/UNIX/Intro/chmod.html
