The e-commerce.

Configuration script


Recommended Posts

I get the following message at the top of my browser when setting things up


Warning: I am able to write to the configuration file: /homepages/28/d50825546/htdocs/phpscriptz/scriptz/catalog/includes/configure.php. This is a potential security risk - please set the right user permissions on this file.


can anyone tell me what file i need to chmod and to what permissions to set them to please? I've tried 600 and 777 but no joy

the message tells you the file catalog/includes/configure.php however if this file is not set then the one inadmin will not be set either admin/includes/configure.php


they should be set to CHMOD 644 if the message is still there then CHMOD 444 read only

Well, I'm sorry, but the solution to this error message seems obvious .. you have to make the file read-only, so follow the instructions of your server's Operating System or make it through your FTP software! And if you don't know how this works for the given operating system, the only old-good solution, which helps almost always, is RTFM!!
