Install errors & permission

Permalink
Hi,
I'm getting green lights up to a point.

The following error message keeps appearing when I try to install with sample content.

Unable to open config/site.php for writing.

Warning: mkdir(): Permission denied in /home/***/public_html/concrete/controllers/install.php on line 201

Warning: mkdir(): Permission denied in /home/***/public_html/concrete/controllers/install.php on line 204

Warning: mkdir(): Permission denied in /home/***/public_html/concrete/controllers/install.php on line 207

Warning: mkdir(): Permission denied in /home/***/public_html/concrete/controllers/install.php on line 210

Warning: mkdir(): Permission denied in /home/***/public_html/concrete/controllers/install.php on line 213

The database is getting populated with 85 tables.

A Permissions problem?
What am I missing?

Thanks,
Nancy O.

make the /config folder 777

Thanks for that suggestion.

But that results in more errors than I had before.

But at least it installed 111 tables instead of 85 (some progress is better than none).

Is there is document somewhere that lists the folders/files and which permission settings they need? I'm uneasy about using 777 unless necessary.

after install, change them to 755 the installer should check beforehand the files and folder permissions

Changed permisiion to 777 for everything. Still the same error in our case. Can we ever get a solution for this?

Thanks!
