Solved: 1.1 RC1: Error: /config/config.php is not writable
« on: December 25, 2008, 08:27:35 AM »
During installation Step 2 I get this error message: "Error: /config/config.php is not writable".

But there is no file /config/config.php. There is only a file /config/empty.config.php. If I make this file writable it does not help.

If I create an empty file /config/config.php and make this writable then I get the error message "Installation error: OpenGoo is already installed".

I don't find any way to proceed with the installation.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Problem solved:

The error message: "Error: /config/config.php is not writable" is just wrong (misleading). Not the file /config/config.php but the folder /config must be writable.

Thanks Karl,

I changed step 2 so that now it will check for the 'config' folder ot be writable.

Interesting.  All I did was touch that file, made sure it had RW-RW-RW access, and it worked.  Is there any other file that is written to that directory?
