I am a complete novice. I have managed to find my way to the server 
tree, at laest for one of my sites.

I think things like navigating round the site,
calling up files or folders,
somebody mentioned how to make a copy/backup of anything I do on the 
site, so I have to do that. I use nano as the text editor.

Copying files, pasting them from one place to another.
Uploading files, then installing the into the correct folders.
Writig to files.
Permissions on those files.

When it talks about pointing to a file for a program to work, giving 
that file permissions.

What I need is for somebody to show me how to do it, so that can see and 
copy the commands to learn.

Somebody told me to get into the site using the Places, but that only 
takes me to one place, I need to be able to get into the Tree, so that I 
can see what is there Hopefully that makes sense.

Its is basically a teaching session.

Hope that helps.
