setup joomla directory permissions chmod

Problem:

One of the best features of joomla is the quick installation process that allow to install the cms online in just only 5 min; but after the installation there is a little issue that give me a rudimentary work to do always.

That dammed work is to change directory permissions on all joomla directory on administrator->system info->Directory permissions; around 28 directories on joomla 1.5.

Solution:

I have created a ftp batch file that change the directory permissions on all joomla 1.5 directories, that batch make the joomla installation more quick.

1.- create a txt file name <myftpbatch>.txt
2.- insert that code on file:

open www.yoursite.com
<user>
<pwd>
cd httpdocs
quote site chmod 0777 administrator/cache
quote site chmod 0777 administrator/backups
quote site chmod 0777 administrator/components
quote site chmod 0777 administrator/language
quote site chmod 0777 administrator/language/en-GB
quote site chmod 0777 administrator/modules
quote site chmod 0777 administrator/templates
quote site chmod 0777 components
quote site chmod 0777 images/
quote site chmod 0777 images/banners
quote site chmod 0777 images/stories
quote site chmod 0777 language
quote site chmod 0777 language/en-GB
quote site chmod 0777 language/pdf_fonts
quote site chmod 0777 media
quote site chmod 0777 modules
quote site chmod 0777 plugins
quote site chmod 0777 plugins/content
quote site chmod 0777 plugins/editors
quote site chmod 0777 plugins/editors-xtd
quote site chmod 0777 plugins/search
quote site chmod 0777 plugins/system
quote site chmod 0777 plugins/user
quote site chmod 0777 plugins/xmlrpc
quote site chmod 0777 templates/
quote site chmod 0777 cache
quote site chmod 0777 new/administrator/cache
quote site chmod 0777 logs
quote site chmod 0777 tmp
quote site chmod 0777 dir
bye
3.- run de following command trough a command window on your local computer:
ftp -s:<myftpbatch>.txt

just done, on only 3 steps now you will have all joomla directories writeable.
that have been tested on Joomla 1.5 installation, when i need it on another joomla version i will update the post.
