Many PHP applications require certain folders/files to be CHMOD'ed and this step tells the user which folders/files should be writeable or readable by the script and verifies that the permissions are set correctly.
Step Name - This title will be displayed at the top of this screen during the installation process.
Description - In the content area of the installation screen, this text will be displayed. The results of the permissions check will follow this description. You must format using HTML. For newlines, you should use '<br />' for HTML breaks.
Directories / Files - Each directory/file you would like to check permissions on should be listed here. Select whether you'd like it to be readable or writeable and then enter the relative path to the directory or file. For example, if I want to upload pictures to /pictures/ using my PHP software, I would verify that '../pictures/' is 'writeable'.
Frequently Asked Questions
Are the paths to the folders/files relative? If so, to what are they relative?
Yes, they are relative to the location of the BuildExec installation script. So, if your installer was located in /install and you wanted to check /pictures/, you would use '../pictures/'.
