configure.php error


Guest

Recommended Posts

Whatever i seem to do, i don't seem to get rid of the following error:

 

Warning: I am able to write to the configuration file: ********************www/catalog/includes/configure.php. This is a potential security risk - please set the right user permissions on this file.

 

i changed the permissions of the file to 644 or 444 , but i still get this message on top of the startup-page. What could i have done wrong?

 

thank you very much for your help.

Contact your host and let them know that PHP thinks a file with 444 permissions is writeable. They will fix it for you.

A lot of hosts do not allow permission changing via FTP. If your server's control panel has a File Manager (or similar application) then you should be able to use that to change the permissions of your files and folders should you need to do so again in the future.
