Joomla Cms Expose Extention

Recommended Posts

Something won't let me change permissions to this Joomla component

folder via cPanel X

 

(unable to connect to server errors when uploading pics)

 

I've scoured Joomla and Expose forums and found nothing

about this problem.

 

Many seem to have the pic upload problem but the common

fix is 7 7 7'ing the folder or creating a "bucket" folder (I

don't have permission to do this either, of course.)

 

TCH Family, HELP!

Hello,

 

If joomla is using that file, you can not change the permissions. If its a component, uninstall the component and then change the file if you can.

 

If not, please submit a help desk ticket and ask them for to make apache not own any of the files.

Thank Jim, but when you uninstall components in Joomla, elements are totally deleted from the database. thus no component directory, and no files to edit on the server.

 

As for editing pre-upload of the zipped component package files:

I wouldn't know which file in the package needed to be changed (or how to change it)

if such a file in the package assigns rights to a generated folder during the install.

 

So I guess I'll submit a help ticket.

 

Thanks

this article is informative on the topic of Joomla file permissions

It appears that Mamboxplorer or Joomlaxplorer has not solved these file permission problems for some of the posters on the above link. The last poster said:

:) I have finally got a satisfactory workaround to the is problem of ownership going to nobody. My web host has set up a cron job to run chown for me every hour. This changes ownership of any files in my website from nobody to my user name.

My hosting company cannot understand why the recent versions of Mambo and also Joomla cause/allow this problem to happen.

I would think that TCH is being flooded with help tickets to change file permissions. Any thoughts from TCH on a solution to this nagging problem? Is a cron job a solution ?

Since the web server is creating the files there really is not much TCH can do. The web server runs as user "nobody" and that is how the files are being created.

As more Joomla installs come in to TCH, expect more help tickets including mine. There is got to be a better way. I will do what I can to help TCH and I figure out a way.

Hello,

 

There is no way around this, its the way Joomla works and correctley so for security reasons. Someone has suggested Mambo explorer but I believe some problems will still exist.

After forum requests and an onslaught of repeated help tickets for the same nuisance Joomla site file permission issue, I wish to congratulate Tim and Carl from TCH helpdesk for taking responsibilty to resolve this problem efficiently by creating a cron job which will run and reassign site owners and permission on Joomla site files.

 

Thanks to the TCH helpdesk for demonstrating customer focus.
