incorrect warning: Able to write to the configuration file

hi

 

i installed oscommerce on windows 2003 server with iis, php 5 and mysql 5

 

my entire www folder has only read permissions

 

inspite of that after installation i get this error

 

Warning: I am able to write to the configuration file: E:\inetpub\mydomain.com\www\bookstore/includes/configure.php. This is a potential security risk - please set the right user permissions on this file.

the windows users ntfs permissions are as follows

 

administrators --- full permissions to read/write/modify

system -- --- full permissions to read/write/modify

 

internet_user -- only read permissions

 

 

since i was getting error, i went ahead and explicitly denied write permissions to administrators and system users for the configure.php file, but still the same warning message

 

 

i simply cannot figure out how this is possible.

 

i need to know how to resolve this or alternatively disable the entire warning message which is totally wrong.

If you check file properties on bookstore/includes/configure.php file, is it read-only?

 

 

yes not only that file but the bookstore folder installation has only read permissions. i have double checkd this

 

 

infact in the present situation i cannot upload product images because write permission is not given.
