Changing permissions in XAMPP Windows xp?

Postby dannnymac » 30. May 2006 16:44

I completely lost when it comes to how to go about changing file permission in xampp.

My php script isnt working cause it keeps saying I dont have permission to access the file. I think I need to change the permissions to 755
but I have no idea how to go about it.

Anyone know?

CHMOD

A easy way is to download a free FTP server or client software, create a ftp connection to localhost (so only you can access it), create a admin account with a strong pasword, set the main directory as your htdocs folder.
Once you have done that you can use CHMOD to edit file permissions.

I'm sorry, but at your last post, Rhodesia, i think: You should First think, than talk!!!

Windows dont have any file permissions....

@topic: I think that permission-problem is caused by the webserver, not by your file-system.

"KingCrunch" :evil:

The file-permissions on Windows are not compareable in any way with the file permissions on Linux.

And more to the point, they cannot be manipulated through ftp.

I don't think file permissions are really a problem when it comes to PHP files. They are executable with a apache module, not a cgi interface. The only permission the web server process needs is the ability to READ the files in question. Which in windows really never is a problem, unless you screwed something up good :D.
