"The configuration files do not exist, or permission levels are not set.

 

Please perform the following actions:

cd /home/packem/www/catalog/includes/

touch configure.php

chmod 706 configure.php

cd /home/packem/www/catalog/admin/includes/

touch configure.php

chmod 706 configure.php"

If you don't have command line (aka shell, telnet or SSH) access, you can use your FTP program to set the permissions. 706 permissions would look something like this in a graphical user interface:

 

..............Owner.........Group.......User

 

Write..........X..............................X

Read..........X..............................X

Execute......X................................

 

As for the "touch" command, configure.php is included in the installation files. So unless you deleted it, it should just be a permissions problem and you won't need the touch command.

Rule #1: Without exception, backup your database and files before making any changes to your files or database.

Rule #2: Make sure there are no exceptions to Rule #1.

Depends on what FTP program you have but I think most mainstream FTP programs allow you to right click a file on the server and choose 'properties' and from there change the permissions.

 

If you don't already have a FTP program, you definitely need to get one. There are many free or cheap ones out there. Here is a forum thread discussing some of them:
