Ye, but... you might want to make sure and wait for another member here to confirm my answer as I am not very confident. Better yet, why don't you contact the iPage guys because they can answer you better...

I could only solve the prob some months ago with a permission 600 - works fine for me..

Chmod 644 (-rw-rr) should be ok for your "oscommerce/includes/configure.php"..

On some servers you must set whole /includes/ directory to chmod 644..

Have you checked does your settings in configure.php and filenames.php in /includes/ directory pointing to correct locations?..

Comment #5

I tried all what people have suggested..

When I changed the whole directory chmod to 644 I get this message on a blank screen:.

Warning: main(includes/application_top.php): failed to open stream: Permission denied in /var/www/html/oscommerce/index.php on line 13.

Fatal error: main(): Failed opening required 'includes/application_top.php' (include_path='.:/php/includes:/usr/share/php') in /var/www/html/oscommerce/index.php on line 13.

Tried setting to 600 & 744 and still get original error warning msg!.

Peeing me off now!..

Comment #7

Still getting the same error msg with permissions set at 400. Thanks tho'..

Someones gotta be able to help me on this it's really driving me crazy!..

Comment #8

Ok here's how to solve this problem if anyone else gets/has it!.

Set chmod of directory oscommerce/includes to 755. This allows you to edit the files inside so you can now change the chmod of configure.php to 500..

Worked fine for me. \o/..
