which directory to CHMOD? (linux webserver @ home)

Having problems installing EM? Let's fix that
Forum rules
DO NOT give out any FTP passwords to anyone! There is no reason to do so! If you need help badly enough, create a temporary FTP account that is restricted to only the files that you need help with and give the information for that. Giving out FTP information can be very dangerous!

which directory to CHMOD? (linux webserver @ home)

Post by nadir »

Hi

my forums are powered by my little linux box here that I'm using as a webserver. I'm trying to install the MOD... I don't have an FTP server running on there.

here are the settings I have chosen:

Reading: server
Writing: server
Moving: copy

this is what is displayed on the left:

File Access Info
read access :: OK
write access :: failed
root path write :: failed
chmod access :: unattempted
unlink access :: unattempted
mkdir access :: unattempted
tmp path write :: OK
FTP extension :: OK
copy access :: failed



When I hit "submit" I get this error:
Testing selected write method
ACCESS ERROR: phpBB does not have permission to write to the EasyMOD directory.
Write stuff about checking permissions and how to.



Am I using the wrong settings or should I have to CHMOD some directories? Also, which chmod command would I have to use (666?). Thanks for the help! this mod is too cool.

okay after some searching... I ended up CHMODing the easymod directory to 777. I got this extended debug message:
EM installer v0.0.10a wrote: phpBB version: 2.0.6
Working Dir: /var/www/html/forums/admin/mods/easymod
Install Step: 3
Mode:
The Error wrote: Warning

Could not open [language/lang_german/lang_admin.php] for reading.
Permissions: (including system errors)
read access :: OK
write access :: OK
root path write :: failed
chmod access :: OK
unlink access :: OK
mkdir access :: OK
tmp path write :: OK
FTP extension :: OK
copy access :: failed



Recommendations:
write: server
move: automated FTP

Selected settings:
write: server
move: exec
ftp dir:

CWD Listing:

Code: Select all

drwxrwxrwx . 
drwxr−xr−x .. 
−rwxr−−r−− easymod_install.php 
−rwxr−−r−− lang_easymod.php 
−rwxr−−r−− admin_easymod_functions.php 
−rwxr−−r−− easymod.gif 
drwxr−xr−x includes 
drwxrwxrwx processed 
drwxrwxrwx backups

Not testing FTP since it is not being used.

And is English installed? English is a requirement for EasyMOD, at least for now.
