      "NOTE you MUST change the CHMOD levels on the entry.txt file to 766"

          CHMOD stands for "Change File Modes"
          766 is an octal representation of the permissions that need to be set for
          the file.

          Basically 766 makes a file
          Executable, readable and writable by User <-- owner of file
          Readable, writable by the Group <-- group of file
          Readable, writable by Other <-- Everyone else, including the user accessing
          your file via the web server.

          To change this, you can probably use your FTP program. Try to change
          permissions on the file entry.txt to match rules above. Almost every FTP
          program I have ever used had this option.

          Or if you have command line access on a *nix machine you can just type
          chmod 766 entry.txt
