congic.inc.php edit?

Postby barda » 02. July 2018 21:11

Hi there -

I'm following a tutorial that first had me set a database password for my root localhost account, then asked me to go to config.inc.php to change it. I have been unsuccessful in doing so.

What have I tried:
1. Editing the file using the command from this Stack Overflow, received 'permission denied':
Code: Select all
sudo nano config.inc.php

https://stackoverflow.com/questions/33515739/editing-the-file-config-inc-php
2. Editing the permissions on the file using this command from a link recommended in the stack overflow:
Code: Select all
chmod 0755 config.inc.php, permission denied

https://blog.elijaa.org/2013/02/18/solve-wrong-permissions-on-configuration-file-should-not-be-world-writable-error-on-phpmyadmin/

I checked with a more knowledgeable friend, who pointed out that I don't own it.

3. So I opened the terminal that comes with XAMPP, but there is nothing in it that behaves like a directory.
Code: Select all
root@debian:~# ls -a
.  ..  .bash_history  .bashrc  .profile  .ssh  bitnami-first-boot-123456
root@debian:~# cd bitnami-first-boot-123456
-bash: cd: bitnami-first-boot-123456: Not a directory



I'm just ... lost. This tutorial, and the udemy course that follows it, all use XAMPP, but I can't seem to edit the file at all. Any thoughts, folks?

That makes it even worse...

Either

sudo chmod 0666 config.inc.php


but it might be possible, that even this command fails. The problem is, you are working with the XAMPP-VM version (why??) and that is installed like a netdrive in a virtually mounted device. Usually the file permissions in network drives are set at mounting time and cannot be changed after (even noot by root).

I recommend to de-install totally the XAMPP-VM version, instead install one of the other "normal" versions (there are at least three or four non-VM versions, only one VM version). These install simply into your /Applications folder and are much easier to handle.

Thank you both for replying! (And ugh, only just now caught my spelling error in the post title. Facepalm, facepalm, facepalm.) I wasn't aware that I'd installed the VM version. I've uninstalled and will reinstall accordingly. Thanks for the tip!
