Have no coding experience and need help installing

when i upload Piwik to my server (using dreamweaver) then go to my broswer i get…

Piwik couldn’t write to some directories.

Try to Execute the following commands on your server:

chown -R www-data:www-data /home/bbwhighw/domains/bbwhighway.com/public_html/piwik
chmod -R 0755 /home/bbwhighw/domains/bbwhighway.com/public_html/piwik/tmp
chmod -R 0755 /home/bbwhighw/domains/bbwhighway.com/public_html/piwik/tmp/templates_c/
chmod -R 0755 /home/bbwhighw/domains/bbwhighway.com/public_html/piwik/tmp/cache/
chmod -R 0755 /home/bbwhighw/domains/bbwhighway.com/public_html/piwik/tmp/assets/
chmod -R 0755 /home/bbwhighw/domains/bbwhighway.com/public_html/piwik/tmp/tcpdf/
If this doesn’t work, you can try to create the directories with your FTP software, and set the CHMOD to 0755 (or 0777 if 0755 is not enough). To do so with your FTP software, right click on the directories then click permissions.
