Why are the errors on this page appearing on my joomla web site?

I recently installed a backup copy of my joomla website to see if the backup would work properly. I duplicated my existing server with my web host provider, then i deleted all the files in the root folder (of new duplicated server), finally I reinstalled the backup copy of my site using Akeeba Kickstart into that same root folder. The reinstallment went pretty well except i'm getting the errors listed below on all my pages (see link). Anybody know why? Thanks.

you need to check your Directory permissions.

Directories should be set to 0755
and files to 0644
go to global settings, uncheck "use ftp" or fill in the right ftp server, login and password.

Webmatrixpune, where is the file or the area in joomla admin where i can set the directories to 0755 and files to 0644? I was just in Global Configurations > permissions and there is no area there to put in this information.

you have to do it via webhost control panel's file manager or via FTP program

In Control Panel, go to File Manager. This should expose the existing Permissions associated with each folder and file.

You can also change the permissions here, folder by folder, file by file.

Alternately you can install a component like Akeeba's AdminTools and use it to reset the permissions site wide in one operation.

If the permissions check does not provide the answer, then I would suspect that the problem might lie with "I duplicated my existing server with my web host provider, then i deleted all the files in the root folder (of new duplicated server),"...

Host environments are set up differently, and some might well require some host-specific files to be left in the root folder of the new site. I would ask your host tech support to identify which files of theirs should be there in a new root directory before you start the kickstart process. If this is the problem, you may simply be able to copy these required files over from your live site's folder. If not you may need to repeat the kickstart process.
