The e-commerce.

write protecting files


Recommended Posts



I have just set up the v2 commerce store. There is an error message at the had of the web page, but I dont understand which files I need to write protect or how. Are they on the virtual server or mine?

Is this error message something about "configure.php is writable"? It would help if you'd give the actual message! Anyway, that one is simple -- both includes/configure.php and admin/includes/configure.php need to be made "read only" so that they can't be accidentally or maliciously changed (they're your basic configuration information). If you're on a Linux server, their default permissions are probably 644. If you're getting this message, you would need to change them (via your hosting control panel's file manager) to 444. If it's a Windows server, you probably need to turn on the "read-only" attribute for those files.


Are they on the virtual server or mine?

If you're going to attempt to run a website, you need to understand where your files exist and what they're doing. In other words, get some education in being a webmaster.
