The e-commerce.

cannot write to configure.php file


Recommended Posts



I checked my catalog and I cannot write anything to that file.

It is a simple change from true to false. What is the problem that I cannot make the change. Is there a bug somewhere? I am of the opinion that if the buttom edit comes up that as soon as I activate that I should be able to make the changes but it is not happening. I am disappointed with this system being a computer professional of y many years experience. I could never design a system like this especially in the case of usability. I cannot write to this file. It says edit but I cannot edit the file. Please give me permission to do this. Oscommerce is not really free; there is a charge for web hosting and the cost to list a store is embedded in the cost of the hosting.


Please let me know what to do to move on

If you have ftp access, download the file to your computer, make necessary change and upload it back.

Check permission on the server, if it is set to read only - you cannot change anything from Admin File Manager.




Best Regards,
