Right

 

I installed my shop a month or so ago..

 

But there keeps being a warning in the top, i am able to write in ////configure.php...

 

The install.txt fil tells me i just need to set it to 444/644 should have more or less same effect. I can set it to 0/444/544/644/744 Nothing helps. The admin file is 444 too.

 

Anyone got any clever idea's?

////configure.php

 

If you are getting exactly that error then your configure.php files aren't set up correctly.

 

Make sure that when you try to change permissions that the permission changes are actually happening. For instance you can't do it using the chmod function via FTP if your server is windows based. Best advice ...use the File Manager in your web hosting control panel - in most cases this will have the ability to change permissions and have the changes stick.

 

If that fails then create a new text file and save it as chmod.php (ignore the warning about changing the file type), put the code below into the file, save it and upload to the root of your osCommerce website. Then you type http://www.yourdomain.com/chmod.php into your browser (for an install into the root of your domain - change if installed into a folder). You won't see anything but the file permissions should have been changed.

 

<?php
chmod ("includes/configure.php", 0444);
?>

 

Once you're certain the file has worked don't leave it on your server.
