Installing error.....*Sighs*
« on: March 18, 2004, 04:00:44 PM »
Hi! I have uploaded everything and when I go to install.php I get this message:

Code: [Select]
Unable to obtain write-access to the file 'Settings.php'!

Please make sure it is uploaded, and try to chmod the file to '777' during this installation proccess. In most FTP clients, you do this by right-clicking on the file and going to "Properties..." or "Permissions..."

I have changed the Settings.php file to the right folder and still no luck. What does the chmod 77 thing mean?
   Thanks.

Did you try right clicking on the file, as the error message says?

What FTP client do you use?
