xampp/tmp directory permissions

Postby inwisconsin » 29. June 2004 20:11

I have attempted to get two CMS written in PHP up and running (Mambo and TikiPro) however it seems that both inform me that PHP is unable to reach or write to /xampp/tmp. The directory is set to be writable to all.


Here is the warning message from both CMS:

Session save path .;c:\server\xampp\tmp, Unwriteable


Support at TikiPro states that I may need to change the open_basedir setting in php.ini, however this restriction kills all other applications on the server.

What are some of my options in this case?

I greatly appreciate it. Thank you.

Have you found a way to make the tmp dir writable? Or any other directory writable? It seems that xampp has restricted writable permissions to all folders in htdocs. I cannot change it to writable in windows, it switches back to read only every time i try. Any ideas? Please advise thanks!

Directorys are allways writable in Windows.

it switches back to read only every time i try. Any ideas? Please advise thanks!

check mark / white background --> Windows mean: not writable
check mark / gray background --> Windows mean: don't know
no check mark / white background --> Windows mean: writable

Thanks for the reply! I get a gray background with check in the read only box when i right click on the folder and choose properties. Everytime I uncheck it, and click ok, it checks the box again. Any ideas?

That's normal!

What's your real problem?
