I am having the same problem but I was told file permissions shouldnt be set to 777 that this can open you up to security issues.

the link to the post that supposedly answers this question leads to the Joomla group in the Philippines and has nothing to do with this subject. a search on that site also returns nothing.

Hello from first time Joomla! user and first time poster.

I am using Joomla! 1.5.15 on MAC OS X 10.4.11 .

I am using XAMPP 1.0.1 and trying to build my site localhost.

And when I log into the administrative backend of Joomla! and try to make any changes I cannot!

So I go to Help>System Info>Directory Permissions

and every single one of them says "Unwritable" !!

So what in the world am I supposed to do now? It seems like I've gotten a brand new car, but when I turn the key, nothing happens.

Please help, I am so stuck!

Sincerely,
Pixel-Pablo

thats the problem when installed with plesk or Cpanel or was unzipped from the ftp.
a joomla install should be uploaded manually via ftp to avoid this issues.

this is because files and folder when installed via cpanel, plesk, etc or unzipped in the host will be owned by APACHE or NOONE. so if you log in via your ftp you cant change permissions because you dont own the file or folders.
