Everybody! This is important. In a few days, these forums will be moving over to using the totally sweet Discourse platform. To ensure this migration happens smoothly with no loss of content, these forums are currently in a read-only mode. I do apologize for the inconvenience.

There is never a good time to turn the forums off for an extended period of time, but I promise the new forums will be a billion times better. I'm pretty sure of it.

See you all on the other side in a few days, and if you have any (non-technical) questions, please e-mail me at kirupa@kirupa.com. For technical questions, try to find a tutorial that corresponds to what you are looking for and post in the comments section of that page.

Thread: write to ./etc/

  1. #1

    write to ./etc/

    I am trying to use a php script to write to a file in the ./etc/test/ directory, and though that file was 777 permissions i get

     Permission denied in /var/www/html/config/index.php on line 18
    can't open file
    when i try to open with fopen and "w" as a paramater. with fopen and "r" it reads the content fine.

    Hi! Could you post the code, please?

    Do you mean /etc/test/, instead of ./etc/test/? You are very likely doing something wrong if you set permissions on a file in /etc/ to 777.
