Having Install Access Denied Issues?

Hi,

 

I just wanted to share the solution to those having all the "FOPEN ACCESS DENIED" errors during installation/configuration...

 

The problem is just as is described, although it takes a bit of troubleshooting and investigation to find out exactly what needs to be done to "fix" it.

 

Basically, you need to have WRITE access into the folowing files/folders:

 

Catalog\Includes\configure.php

Catalog\Admin

Catalog\Install

 

It is recommended to setup authentication and not permit anonymous access to admin and install folders. Configure.php write access in the includes folder can be set for write access only by authenticated administrators.

 

It took about 5 hours of following all the .php code and error messages to get it all to work properly. Too bad none of this is documented.. I was about 5 minutes from going to another ecommerce solution.

 

So there you go, hope this helps!!!

 

:thumbsup:
