configure.php permissions...


The Annoyed Man

Recommended Posts

I've tried resetting permissions on both configure.php files to 644, 444, & 400. It doesn't matter which I set it to, the catalog front page keeps displaying the pink highlighted error message:

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

Nothing I do seems to make a difference. Does anybody have any suggestions (besides giving up and getting drunk)?

Does the permission acually change or does it stay the same .. the file may be owned by root which means you have to log into root to change the permissions/owner.

Both my FTP client and the osCommerce admin section file manager show that the permissions are changed, so I assume it is changed.

I have the exact same problem but I'm signed in as "root" and I still can't change it. There's got to be an answer out there. Anyone know it?

This happened to me recently. I did the things you did, resetting permission multiple times. Still, kept getting the same message. I found a way to set the permission and stop the message from coming up.

 

1. FTP - I downloaded configure.php from my web server to my local machine

2. Deleted configure.php in the server

3. FTP - Uploaded configure.php from my machine to web server

4. Set configure.php permission to 444.

 

It worked! I'm on a linux server. For windows, set it to read-only.

if you guys having still problem with chmod permission as i hade before use this

http://se2.php.net/chmod

 

just create or change the .htaccess file on the root or catalog folder it will work.
