    Joomla 1.5 - Synetrix Hosting

    I have been trying to install joomla 1.5 on our webspace with synetrix, uploaded the package ok run through the install and get right to the end and it gives an error: -

    httpdocs\configuration.php) function.file-put-contents: failed to open stream: Permission denied in \httpdocs\installation\installer\models\model.php on line 856

    now a permission problem I hear you scream but I have changed the permission on the installation folder itself still no joy

    Normally you get the script for the configuration.php, create that delete installation directory and your away in theory at least.

    Am I missing something here? do the permission need changing else where?

    Help would be appreciated

    Big question is where the fputs function is trying to put the file..

    The folder in question probably isn't writeable by the process thus the permissions error.

    when you ftp the folder you need to check permissions on all the folders are correct do not set 777 and to all files but and start of install it tell you what files need what permissions they need to be set before install. I think this is what is causing the problem. It could also be a database issue I know some hosts don't let certain thing happen and they have to do the install

    Solved this problem, I created a blank configuration.php in httpdocs and it worked fine

    Advice?

    Hi there - have you any advice for setting up Joomla with the Synetrix setup?
    Everyone (official) are decidedly uphelpful.
    I'm in Derbyshire, so hopefully things will be similar.
    I've uploaded the Joomla folder into httpdocs, but can't find the install info via the browser.
    If this all works ok, I will "roll" it out to a number of Primary schools I support.

    Any help would be extremely welcome...

    Thanks & Regards,
    Russell

    Hi,

    I've got the Plesk panel - I'm probably being awkward as I'm trying to install it as an addtion to the present html site (e.g. www.mysite.com/Joomla).

    I'll check with the Plesk though.
