Directory permission issue while Execution time

Postby riya1994 » Apr 24th, '17, 05:50

Hey can anyone tell me why i am getting this error in server requirements step while this executing project
"The directory is not writable!
You must grant 'write' permissions (access rights 0755 or 777, depending on your system settings) to this directory before you start the installation!
This installation requires config_file_dir settings turned on/installed."

what do i need to do ?

Create such folder and give it "write" permissions.

Hello,

New to PHP and having the same error. I have tried adding a folder named "EI_CONFIG_FILE_DIRECTORY" and "Common" I get the same error whether or not I have my edited config file in the folder or not. Am I supposed to make changes to the Database_settings file?

Note: All my folders have 0755 permissions.

Any help is much appreciated!

Too any other noobs who run into this issue in the future. You need to open install/include/settings.inc.php and edit EI_Config_File_Directory. Once you find the file it's easy.

In your system grant 777 or 755 access rights.
How to do this depends on what OS you work with.
