Permissions problem


Recommended Posts

For some reason I am getting the following warning in a pink box at the top after correctly setting the permissions. I even tried turning off all the permissions. I put the settings to 755, 744, 700 and I even tried 000 but nothing worked. Can any one help? Could it be a server side problem?


Warning: I am able to write to the configuration file: /www/s/sugoi75/htdocs/store/catalog/includes/configure.php. This is a potential security risk - please set the right user permissions on this file.


This problem doesn't occure in my admin section though. Only my shopping cart area.

try changing the OWNERSHIP and then setting the permission.


chown yourname.yourgroup configure.php

chmod 755 configure.php



Problem is (I guess) the file owned by 'nobody.nobody' which is also what your webserver is running as. So setting it to 700 will still allow Apache to write to it.
