: The list of folders provided for v3.3/v4.0. See the setup_manual.pdf
for the respective list of folders.
If your host do not allow you to set security permissions, send a request so that the server administrator sets permissions for your.Note:

If you or your host set permissions but you still getting the same error warning be absolutely sure that permissions are not properly set. If you set permissions for 2 folders and missed 1, you will still get the this warning.
