Permissions? Trying to install theme

Hello, I couldn't install a custom theme as I kept getting a notification about the parent directory having the wrong file permissions.

So I changed the permissions of the /httpdocs/wp-content/plugins and /httpdocs/wp-content/themes folders to 777. Then I read that I really shouldn't have needed to do that, can someone recommend a better configuration?

In addition, whilst using FileZilla, I um unable to view the .htaccess file in the home directory, even though I have been to the options menu, Server > Force showing hidden files. In the remote file list, at the bottom, the status panel states the four files are hidden and this is one of them. What am I doing wrong?

Thank you for your consideration.
