How do I change file permissions?


There are three files that need permissions changed once uploaded to the web server:



config.inc.php

license.php

calendar.php


After installing and configuring the script, these files should be immediately set back to 644 (or another non-writable state) for security reasons.

There are two popular ways to set file permissions. One is by using a FTP program and the other is by using the servers file manager (if available).



FTP: Most FTP programs set permissions the same way. Right-click on the file to be changed and select properties or permissions. Set the permissions number to 646 or check the appropriate boxes like the example below. The way this is done depends on the specific FTP program being used.

X O X

O O O



This makes the files writable by the script so the configuration changes can be saved.



NOTE:
Some servers require different permissions such as 664 or 777. If the calendar script displays permission errors after trying all of these combinations, please consult your web host provider.

Some servers can run special configurations of PHP in which all files are writable always, but are protected by user accounts. In this case you will see the security message, but your files should be protected. Only your web host provider or server administrator can confirm this.

If you wish to suppress the security message, manually edit the config.inc.php file and add the following line of code just before ?> $EPC_hideSecurity="1";
