Given the variety of settings of the servers, it may be in a directory, groups, for example web.
3 - Permission on files
The following files are located in the directory
- /includes/ClicShopping/Work : All the directories including the sub-directories
In Filezilla, go to the directory and right mouse button,

Step 2 : Configuring the database
This step is to make a connection to your database.
For safety reasons, it may be that you can not create the database from the installation file. Your host has provided you with a password, a login (username), web address to connect to the administration of PhpMyadmin or from your hosting manager to create a database .
Depending on the case, you will have 4 parameters at your disposal
