Permissions problem in step 5 of installation


iain_brklyn

Recommended Posts

At step 5 of install.php (/catalog/install/install.php?step=5) I get a 403 Forbidden error: Forbidden

 

You don't have permission to access /catalog/install/install.php on this server.

 

 

I've tried setting permissions on both the admin/includes and includes directories to 777. The permissions of install.php are 777. What's going on? Why would I lose permissions halfway through the process? Is there anything I can do to bypass the auto-install and cofigure the files myself?

All you have to do is run the install/oscommerce.sql on your database with something like phpmyadmin. Then you need to set the paths and mysql information in the includes/configure.php and the admin/includes/configure.php.

Other great Open Source (Free) programs: (Free as in free speech not free beer)

The Gimp - An image program. | Firefox - All you have to do is add the Web Developer add-on to make this web browser complete. | FileZilla - An ftp program. | Inkscape - A good program to create images with. | Thunderbird - An email program. | Openoffice.org - An office suite that is compatible with MS Office. | Abiword - Another office suite. | Audacity - A sound recording tool. | ddp's Picks | Wordpress - An easy to use blogging software. | Joomla - An easy to use CMS that has ecommerce plug-ins. | Drupal - Another CMS

How do I find these programs? Google Search!

Great - thanks! I'm up and running.

Ok...this is no longer going well. After giving up on the auto install I discovered that most things in my store (admin links, etc) were not working correctly. I assume I wasn't fully configured or something. SO..I've started over. I deleted all the files and created a new db. Again, I have a permissions problem at step 5. Does anyone have any idea what could be wrong? Up until step 5, everything is fine. Let me know if you have any advice -and thanks in advance.

Nothing, huh? If this helps, on step three, I got the following message:

 

Warning: set_time_limit(): Cannot set time limit in safe mode in /home/virtual/site372/fst/var/www/html/catalog/install/includes/functions/general.php on line 47

 

The database import was successful!

 

Is this in anyway related to my step five permission problem?

Same here. I've done tons of searching here for an answer to no avail. Anyone?

I don't know how good your German is, but de.osCommerce.info shows a solution to this problem, which seems to consist of simply commenting the line with set_time_limit().

 

Grtz,
