Journal Setup Problem - customizing the look

Postby GeorgeLoney » Tue May 25, 2004 10:08 am

I am trying to add new logos to the OJS pages and get the following error.
Warning: Unable to create '/var/www/html/ojs/images/custom/ojs_home_title.gif': Permission denied in /var/www/html/ojs/admin/editor/step5.php on line 93

I am using version 1.1.6 running on Linux.
I have modified all permissions in the entire path to rw for the world (not my preferred method) and I have changed the ownership to be the Apache server owner and group names.

So on your server, /var/www/html/ojs/images/custom is world rwx, /var/www/html/ojs/images/custom/ojs_home_title.gif (if it exists) is world rwx, and any parent directories are at least rx? That should be fine if that is the case (although only Apache should really need write access).

Is your server running PHP in "safe mode"?

Thanks, Kevin.

It was the executable setting that was missing.
