What's the command you are using?
If you want to change permissions recursively use '-R' e.g.
Code:
chmod -R 755 /path/to/dir

Code:
root@sms:~# cd /var/www/htdocs/pligg
root@sms:/var/www/htdocs/pligg# chmod 777 languages/
root@sms:/var/www/htdocs/pligg#


after I see with mucommander (file manager) that the permissions of the languages folder is 700 !

Doing
Code:
ls -l /var/www/htdocs/pligg

you should see languages folder with permissions
drwxrwxrwx and should be in green color, (777)

If you want to change permissions to files and folders inside languages folder too, you need to pass '-R' in your command, like

Code:
chmod -R 777 /var/www/htdocs/pligg/languages


try it and let me know.
