permissions on configuration.php


Ironside

Recommended Posts

I've just installed the program and I had two messages at the top of the main screen, one telling me to delete the install directory, and the other one telling me that the configuration.php files is writable. I've just looked at it, and the permissions are 644, can't understand why it's telling me this. Any ideas?

644 is writable (for the owner). 4 = readable, 2 = writable, 1 = executable. 4+2 = 6. Change it to 444 to silence the error message.

 

The install directory should be removed once you've completed the install, so hackers can't run stuff in it to mess up your installation.
