AS this cms is called get-simple I had thought it would be easy to set up without specialist knowledge. However on the first page it says:
"4. You may also need to recursively CHMOD the folder /data/ to 755 if your host doesn't set it implicitly. "
What does this mean, what and where is CHMOD and how do I recursively CHMOD the folder?

I have a Bluehost account.

Thanks

Are you having problems installing or saving pages?
Does your install throw any errors?

I am not even at that stage yet. I am struggling to understand even how to get started!
it is simple, but some knowledge of internet/web hosting terms and your host's control panel is implied, and necessary. chmod, what it is and how (and when) to perform the operation, would fall in that category (as would understanding this next line....)

for cpanel-based hosts that run php as your user account, it is usually easiest (and fastest) to extract and then rezip without a nested folder (zip the folders and files inside the extracted getsimple-ver folder) , locally, then upload and extract to the desired location on the server (usually public_html) using cpanel's web-based file manager.

It's best to not use cpanel and use a ftp program instead. Because some plugins (I18n Gallery, etc.) have their file + folder permissions set to 777. If you upload and unzip that will not change. While copying via ftp, ftp software changes the permissions to correct permission setting (if configured correctly).
cpanel user usually doesnt match your web user also.
ftp is always preferred

chmod "May" be needed if you have issues.

chmod is not a getsimple related instruction it is a host permissions.
google ftp chmod , most fpt clients can do it if you have perms.

also there is a chmod script in the forums someone wrote.
