Installation problem step7

Recommended Posts

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

 

Please perform the following actions:

cd /home/7958/glenn2/www.plotsforsale.co.uk/public_html/catalog/includes/

touch configure.php

chmod 706 configure.php

 

How do i rectify this problem?

This is an error typical of a Windows server, and means that it cannot write to the includes/configure.php file. I also doubt that it can write to the admin/includes/configure.php file.

 

They both need to have permissions set to 706 for the install to write data to them.

 

This is best done via the File Manager in your web hosting control panel, but the error message is telling you how to do it via an SSH or Telnet connection - which relatively few people know how to do.

 

If you connected via an SSH terminal then you would input this line to take you to the correct folder:

 

cd /home/7958/glenn2/www.plotsforsale.co.uk/public_html/catalog/includes/

 

and once there you would input these lines to change permissions:

 

touch configure.php

 

followed by:

 

chmod 706 configure.php

 

But stick with using the File Manager in your web hosting control panel.
