"the Packages directory or one of the files in it are not writable!" BUT IT IS!

<< < (4/6) > >>

Luka Paunović:
Guys , i found solution :)
just switch to mod_php_ruid2

all will be working great, as like in shared hosting ;)

BlondChick:
Be sure, the FTP path to SMF is correct.

Luka Paunović:
SOLUTION FOR THIS IS REALLY CLEAR, OK?

If you using shared hosting, just set permissions to your packages directory to 777.
If it didn't work, and even with temp folder, then contact your host via ticket, because problem is in hosting , and it will be fixed fast

If you using VPS , and you have problem with permissions, solution is really EASY, change php type, change from mod_php (or suphp,etc..) to mod_php_ruid2 and all problems with permissions, installing mods, ownerships will be fixed

SIGH. 777 (World Writable) doesn't always work!. Many hosts forbid such permissions and will bar access to such directories, Maybe you'll get a 500 error, maybe you'll just get an inability to write. But STOP GIVING OUT BAD ADVICE -- you should always start with 755, and only if that doesn't work try 775, and as a last resort, 777.

You need to understand how your hosting service has configured PHP, so that you know when PHP is allowed to write to a given directory.
