No permission to start install.php
« on: August 29, 2004, 03:48:42 pm »

Who can help?

I've set the permissions for the folders albums and include. But if I start install.php in the Internet Explorer "403(forbidden)" appears.
Where can I open install.php?

obviously a permission issue. Coppermine needs read/execute permissions in everything within the coppermine folder, and read/write/execute in "include" and "albums". Make sure there's no .htacces file in place anywhere that hinders the file from being served. This is not a coppermine issue, refer to the apache manual or contact your webhost (depending on: are you self-hosted or webhosted?).

I am having this same problem. I've chmoded everything to 777.  If there is an .htaccess file in the way, where would it be? I have the coppermine files stored in a /copper subdir.  Could an .htaccess file in a directory below the coppermine subdir be causing problems?  Are the owner and group also critical?

I'm running SuSe Linux.  Thanks.

.htaccess files within a folder and above are being taken into account, not below it. The server is yours to run, we can't say where it could possibly be - you can use your OS' built-in search function to scan for .htaccess files that are above your coppermine folder.

Of course owner and group settings have to be configured properly as well - this is usually done by the webserver admin (i.e. your webhost). If you're self-hosted (meaning: you're the server admin), you're in for some reading-up proper server setup - this is not a coppermine issue (as running coppermine implies having a working and properly set up webserver in the first place).
