Hello - thanks for this product, it looks great!

I've tried to install but am having an issue getting past the folder permission check. 

Permissions for ...edintradv1/www/data See Below 777 777

I've tried setting the permissions to a few different types but it still won't let me past with the login credential information...

If you have any suggestions, I'd appreciate your help.

Thanks!

Permissions for ...edintradv1/www/data See Below 777 777

So according to this line, the php script is detecting that it cannot either create or write to the ...edintradv1/www/data folder. Normally the problem has to do with permissions...

I've tried setting the permissions to a few different types but it still won't let me past with the login credential information...

And it appears as though you've set the permissions for ...edintradv1/www/data to 777 and it still doesn't work...

And it doesn't sound like you're on a system with safe mode turned on...

So, since ...edintradv1/www/data already exists (right?), there are two possibilites:

  1. php's is_writable() function is not working properly.
  2. the data folder really isn't writable, even though the permissions are set to 777.

To test this out, would you mind trying something? Within your /include/install/install.php file, look for these lines (approx line 324)

        if( $ok ){
     //Form_SafeMode();
     Form_Entry();
     return;
}

and change them to

        $ok = true;
if( $ok ){
     //Form_SafeMode();
     Form_Entry();
     return;
}

Sorry for the long winded answer,

Josh

Thank you for your reply.  I replaced the code suggested, and I was able to see the admin and password fields.  But, I got a mkdir() [function.mkdir]: Permission denied on all the actions ;)

I know it's my server as it's pretty much completey locked down.  Thanks anyway - I always try these flat file CMS's just in case ;)

Cheers

Ruh roh...I found a /www/data directory and since it was in a weird location i.e. not under www.domain.ca/data, I thought that MWiki had installed it. So I deleted it. Do I need to get it back? I assume the "setup" process created it?

Yes! The data directory is very important!

The data directory contains all of user data: pages, add-on information, etc.

Phew...it's still there! Maybe it re-created it for me or something.
