Good day

I am trying to edit my theme in Joomla, but I received the following error message:

Unable to create or write to the file: /home/ryneveldco/public_html/templates/manifests/manifest.php
Insufficient permissions.

The theme cannot be edited. Please make sure that the user and group running web server is granted the appropriate read, write and execute(linux only) permissions on the following folders. As well as read and write permission on the files in these folders:

/home/ryneveldco/public_html/administrator/templates
/home/ryneveldco/public_html/templates
/home/ryneveldco/public_html/language
/home/ryneveldco/public_html/plugins/content
/home/ryneveldco/public_html/plugins/editors-xtd
/home/ryneveldco/public_html/tmp
How to do this for MacOS or Linux systems:

login ssh/terminal under privileged user, get sufficient access rights if need using sudo or su to make next changes
cd /home/ryneveldco/public_html
chmod -R u=rwX,g=rX folder_name
For example: chmod -R u=rwX,g=rX app/code/local
chown -R <user>:<group> folder_name
For example: chown -R apache:apache app/code/local
Note: It is general approach. We would recommend that you ask your hosting administrator to grant access permissions for listed folders and files.

Please advise urgently.
