GoDaddy permissions trouble
edited June 2009 in Vanilla 1.0 Help
I am in the middle of trying to add Vanilla to my GoDaddy hosted site...I am running into an error on Step 1, the /conf files are not being added (settings.php, langauges.php, etc.) Has anyone ran into this problem, or can you offer some help... I built my site with Dreamweaver in design layout mode and know very little about code or working with servers...so give me a break. Thanks, Nick
If you have problems in the future, do this for whatever folders you think might be having problems.. One of the issues with GoDaddy, is that it automatically sets all the files to inherit the permission of the directories they are in.. not neccessarily a bad thing.. just something to keep in mind..
one other thing.. you can not set the permissions of individual 'files' in GoDaddy.. you can only set the permissions of 'folders' (directories)..
whenever you set permissions, make 'sure' that the 'inherit the permissions of parent directory' switch is 'deselected'.. That is what was causing me the same problem when I set it up.... it's selected by default, and will prevent your permissions from being applied as it keeps getting it's permissions from the parent....
