    I was changing permission with via FTP to CHMOD 666 in order to get Google sitemap plugin to work. I must of done something, because now my site is down. and I get this error when visiting the site. When logging on to my host via FTP, I can’t see most of the folders. Did I lose everything? :(

    Means:

    The site you are asking about does not seem to be hosted on WordPress.COM so you need to make friends over at WordPress.ORG the keepers of the software you are using.

    And why would you change anything to 666?

    Files: 644
    Folders: 755

    Good point @TSP

    Chmod 666. 666 means read and write access for everyone. When you perform chmod 666 filename command you allow everyone to read and write to the file.
