Web host won't all perm777 / errors upgrading Gallery2
|Posted: Fri, 2012-07-13 22:13|
Update: As mentioned in a post below, the web host will not allow 777 permissions.
I've googled, I've checked the codex, but before I attempt what I'm about to do, I'd like to get some second opinions.
I don't have much information on the settings below like I normally would, because this isn't my site that's having the problems, but my aunt and uncle's. Pretty much I make sure it keeps running, and they get to add pictures for their business. ..And sometimes I get cookies for payment! But anyway...
Site was working just fine, and then the site was taken over by the update process. I got errors that the permissions for the gdata file weren't 777, so I went about making sure they were. When some refused to change permissions, I had to contact their web host. After a day they finally proclaimed it was fixed and all 777 again, but I was still getting the same error.
I was thinking, what I could do, is backup the site and the database, wipe the site clean, and install Gallery3, and then use the import feature. And if there's any errors, chances are files are corrupt. What do you all think?
