Can not install

Posted:05 Nov 2009 (19:46 UTC)
Trying to install bitweaver 2.6.1 on my pc to test it out. Running into the following error from /bitweaver/install/install.php

bitweaver is not properly set up:
c:\inetput\wwwroot\bitweaver\temp not writable by system. Check security of the file.
c:\inetput\wwwroot\bitweaver\storage not writable by system. Check security of the file.

xp pro sp 3
'system' user does have 'full control'
added 'everyone' user and gave 'full control' for those two folders.

Anyone have any ideas on what to do to get rid of this error?

Those directories need to be writable by Apache (or whatever your webserver is). That means you need to change the ownership of those directories and permissions.

chown -R apache:apache temp storage;
chmod -R 750 temp storage;

lastly, our preference after chmoding them open is to close down the permissions on files inside temp which don't need to be as open, so this:

find temp -type f -exec chmod 640 {} \;

If you dont have ssh access or permission to change ownership or permissions on files you may need assistance from your host.
