Help - just finished install now warning in administration page

Recommended Posts

I am a newbie to OSCommerce and even newer to php.

 

Sorry if this is answered somewhere in these forums, I've been trying to find it but cannot. I have gotten my store installed, then went back and changed my includes/configure.php and admin/includes configure.php permissions to 644. These permissions appear on my FTP site listing. Yet, when I login to the administration page I get the following message. (I've xx'd the identification, but otherwise the message is complete).

 

"I am able to write to the configuration file: //home/xx/xx/xxxxx/web/xxx.com/includes/configure.php. This is a potential security risk - please set the right user permissions on this file."

 

What am I missing?

Lynette,

 

 

The TWO configure.php files need to be write protected. Using your FTP client or hosting account file manager, located the two files at:

 

/includes/configure.php

/admin/includes/configure.php

 

and change the permissions to 444

Lynette,

 

Read it like that and you have a better chance of success.

 

FTP doesn't work to do this most of the time.

If I suggest you edit any file(s) make a backup first - I'm not perfect and neither are you.

The only time I have ever had a problem is on a Plesk Panel site. So, MOST of the time the FTP client will work. But you are right in saying that the hosting control panel will always work.

The forum has hundreds (if not thousands) of posts from people who have said FTP won't work at successfully changing the permissions on the config files.

 

Obviously your experience has been more successful than most.

Thank you all for your help. I was able to get it to work from my FTP. Whew! What problems being code fatigued can cause!! I could not see my mistake. Thank you for being clearer heads!
