I am setting up a PHPBB and in the install instructions at their site it says I should make sure the server has allow write permissions so people can upload their avatars, how do i do this here at Wets Host.

More then likely you won't have to do anything. :) That being said both the older WestHost Site Manager accounts and the newer cPanel accounts have file managers available when you log into them. I could give you more details on that if you told me which you have. http://kb.westhost.com/questions/1030/Am+I+in+Site+Manager+or+cPanel+hosting%3F You can also use a FTP program to log in and do it. http://kb.westhost.com/questions/754/What+is+%22FTP%22%3F

Again you shouldn't really have to set permissions on either account unless you do something odd when you install PHPBB.

Oh also PHPBB has a great article on permissions and what they should be and how to do it via FTP. https://www.phpbb.com/kb/article/phpbb3-chmod-permissions/
