Question I have... Does anyone know a good web iPage hosting service? Looking forward for any answer. My other question... I am having trouble with editing the porpteries of the configure.php file, I changed it and it returns to it's default, and in the catalog page of the site, it continues to ask me this:.

Warning: I am able to write to the configuration file: /www/o/s/oshasafetymanual.com/htdocs/osCommerce/catalog/includes/configure.php. This is a potential security risk - please set the right user permissions on this file..

How do I change this, or get rid of this statement above the catalog page?.

Of course! but... you might want to make sure and wait for another member here to confirm it as I am not quite sure. Better yet, why don't you contact the iPage guys because they can answer your iPage question better...

Hi Deb.

I changed the properties in FTP ACE software, to 700, and did a refresh on the catalog and still it appears..

Any other suggestion, perhaps you can suggest a different application to change this?.

Chmod using ftp wont work if your on a windows machine.

You have to change it from your webhosting panel like cpanel..

Then make the changes to the file..

Then make sure you change the permissions back..

We are not using cpanel to access the server, we are being hosted by powweb.com, and they have a control panel, but there is nothing in there I can see to change the settings, not sure what step to take now of this account?..

Comment #4

They probably have a master script enabled that has modification rights on your files. Have had this problem with other hosters, and solved the problem by changing hosts...

Comment #5

Normally you would chmod 644 and if the message still appears then chmod 444..

I'm having them do it!.

It appears they have to do it, and when I setup future accounts with these iPage hosting providers, I will have to have them change it as well..

Either way is okay with me..

Thanks!.

You shouldn't have to, I am on powweb. Go into the ops.powweb.com and log into the web ftp. There you can change the permissions to 777 so you can edit the configure files. Then to change the permissions back, the ftp won't work for some reason but you can create a php file and call it protect.php or whatever you want and put just this in it:.

<?php.

Chmod('includes/configure.php', 0444);.

?>.

Put the file in the catalog folder and run it by going to the url. A blank page will come up which is what is supposed to happen. Also put it in your admin folder and run the url there also to change the admin configure file..

This warning appears when the rights on configure.php allow people to write and/or execute it. To avoid the warning message, set the permissions for this file to read-only (under Windows) or 700 (under Unix / Linux)..

Hope it'll help...
