My hosting company does not allow me to set chmod 777 permissions

Does the script show any problem saying that it cannot write to a directory or file? If it does not, then everything is OK.

If it cannot write to a directory or file and you can only set to 666, then try to do this:

Create empty files with the following names:

in admin/temp/

temp1.png
temp1.jpg
temp1.gif
background1.png

in pixels/

main1.png
main1.jpg
main1.gif

Then give chmod 666 to all the files above.

These files can be just plain text files. For example upload myfile.txt and rename to temp1.png, upload myfile.txt and rename to temp1.jpg, and so on…

The above example creates the files for grid 1. If you have a 2nd grid, replace the 1 with a 2, and so on..
