Hello,

I have recently created a website using oscommerce on my localhost using MAMP. I'm now ready to go live with it but I'm having trouble! I thought I could just upload it with dreamweaver via ftp the go to www.domainname.co.uk/install and it would go through the setup. I am getting the following error

The webserver is not able to save the installation parameters to its configuration files.

The following files need to have their file permissions set to world-writeable (chmod 777):

/customersites/9/home/httpd/vhosts/2wyn.co.uk/httpdocs/includes/configure.php
/customersites/9/home/httpd/vhosts/2wyn.co.uk/httpdocs/admin/includes/configure.php

Can anyone advice me what to do? I don't have much knowledge in this field.

Thanks

As far as i know dreamweaver lacks the ability to set permissions on remote files.

Yes you can upload it using the dreamweavers builtin ftp program, but you will need to use a real ftp program like "http://cyberduck.ch/". I haven't used that program yet as I'm a new mac user but been hearing good stuff about it.

Using the ftp program you log into the site so it allows you to view the files. Browse to the necessary files and once highlighted you should be able to change the permissions.

Changing the permissions is usually called chmodding, so look for anything in that program that resembles chmod. You will know your in the right place because it allows you to modify the numbers and change it to 777.

In fact while i was typing the above, i did a quick search and found out how to set permissions with the above program lol

Note: If you on a windows host, you sometimes need to ask the host to set the permissions for you. If you are on a linux/unix server then your almost always allowed to chmod the files by default.

Or you could change the permissions from the good old terminal

Code:
ftp ftp.domainname.com
Authenticate with server by entering username and password

Navigate to the correct folder eg

Code:
cd public_html
and then chmod the file(s) in question

Thanks damainman,

I have successfully edited the files using cyberduck. That was so easy once I knew where to go and what software to use- thanks.

I still have a few niggles! Can you help?

I was following an online guide to setting up oscommerce with ftp and thought it would be as straight forward as inserting my domain name followed by /install but I'm now getting the following error.

1146 - Table 'npj60xquagqg.configuration' doesn't exist

select configuration_key as cfgKey, configuration_value as cfgValue from configuration.

I have created this site on my localhost using MAMP and just want to get it live. I don't know much about this can anyone help?

Thanks
