Hi

 

1) do you have cPanel?

 

if so go to file manager and go to includes/configure.php and change permissions to 644

Using an FTP program, access your server and change the permissions (chmod) of the file configure.php in the directory /includes/ to 644

Using an FTP client again, goto your /admin/ directory and create a new folder (directory) in there called backups ... change the permissions (chmod) to this new directory to 777 ... then modify this file /admin/includes/configure.php and near the bottom of this file where it states define('DIR_FS_BACKUP', ... change it to this: define('DIR_FS_BACKUP', DIR_FS_ADMIN . 'backups/'); and reupload it to your /admin/includes/ directory

I have already done this and I also changed admin/includes/configure.php to 644. They actually both at 644 so I tried changing them to 777 and back didnt work, Any other ideas

cPanel or your host's panel is the best and safest way to change permissions as some time FTP's do not work all the time where cPanel or your host's panel do.
