Joomla 1.5 Permissions Problem


Recommended Posts

One of my clients has a Joomal 1.5 site (currently 1.5.8 but about to upgrade) and he is claiming that he is unable to install plugins and extensions without manually changing directory permissions to 777. I have various Joomla 1.0 and Wordpress 2.7 sites and have never had any problem with permissions. The only difference I can think of is that I installed the scripts via Fantastico and he did it manually. Is anyone aware of anything that may have been missed during a manual install or which is done in the Fantastico install process that could cause these kinds of problems?


I have asked him to back up the site then upgrade to 1.5.9 via Fantastico to see if that solves the problem. Is this liable to help?


Thanks in advance for any suggestions,


Dave Wilson
