Hello If anyone could help I would be very grateful. I removed PS 1.5.4 totally including the old database, off my server. I downloaded PS 1.5.5. from Prestashop home page, unzipped it and FTP to my server. I renamed the folder from prestashop to eshop. I navigated in my browser to www.mydomaind.com/eshop/install I received this error message: I looked at the installation instructions in docs found here: There is nothing about changing permissions about any folders or files before navigating to the install file. I then looked for the readme file in the downloaded files, and found readme.pdf However, when attempting to open readme.pdf, an error message stating the file was corrupted and I should redownload it. It's the same in the zipped archive, corrupted file. Any assistance would be appreciated, thanks.
Hello, I am getting error while installing " Your PHP sessions path is not writable - check with your hosting provider: C:\Windows\Temp\ " " PHP parameters: PDO MySQL extension is not loaded " Please Help saurabh. [email protected]
My admins don't like having directories in the HTML tree that are writable by the web server. Clearly several directories need to be writable by the system in order to upload attachments, upload images, update the cache and smarty cache, etc. However, it's a security issue having these writable directories in the HTML directory tree - imagine if someone were able to coax your server into writing an executable file or php file to your writable directories, then do arbitrary things to your server. I was hoping that changing the constants in prestashop/config/defines.inc.php would allow me to move my img directory outside the HTML tree, but in my testing that did not work. It seems these directories must be somewhere in the HTML tree. Is there a way to do this for the img directory? What about the smarty and cache directories? thanks for any help or insight you can provide.
