Changing Permissions of the Configure.php


Recommended Posts

Warning: I am able to write to the configuration file: ..../..../.../configure.php. This is a potential security risk - please set the right user permissions on this file.


I have tried changing this both in the file manager in cPanel as well as using cute ftp into my account and changing it that way. For some reason it just isn't cooperating. It stays at 644 for the file atributes. Any thoughts?

I had to use a small PHP file to actually get the configure.php file to CHMOD to the correct setting try this.


Create a file called protect.php with the following contents:


chmod('includes/configure.php', 0444);


Upload it to your catalog folder and then in a browser open protect.php on your site. It will set the protection.


You should also upload this to your admin folder too. Once you have done this, you can delete the protect.php files.


Hope that helps.
