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 have changed the chmod back to 644 using Bullet FTP. Still get same error warning message..
Did you CHMOD the amdin Congif or the Catalog config>?.
It is Checking the Catalog Config..
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?..
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!..
I have my config files with 400 permission level. that was the only way I could avoid that message..
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!..
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/..
How do I change the user permissions?.
Your 2 configure.php files have to be chmod back to 644.
