Hi and thank you for reading my post.

So I decided to install joomla using wget this time, so here is what I did:

1. logged in via ssh.
2. found the right folder for joomla to be installed in (/home/example/public_html/joomla)
3. used Wget ----download path----
4. used unzip ----filename----
5. I then went to the browser to install joomla example.com/joomla.

but now I am getting a 500 error, there are no htaccess files in the folder and every time I try to chage chmod via ftp I get an error saying I dont have access. The rest of the site works, it's only that directory.

Please help.

You could try chmod via SSH. If this doesn't work, it may be that the directory is not owned by the account you use for FTP or for SSH. Maybe it's a directory which was created on the fly by the Apache web server during the Joomla installation process. You can only change the access rights for directories and files you own, unless you are logged in as root to the system.
