JFTP::write: Bad response | Unable to open configuration.php

Post by PhishShticks » Fri Jan 04, 2008 5:13 pm

i'm trying to change my meta data and sef/seo options in the global config and i'm getting the following error...

        * JFTP::write: Bad response

Message

        * An Error has occurred! Unable to open configuration.php file to write!

i know i have my ftp settings correct (i verified them upon installation) and i chmod'ed the entire joomla directory to 777, but i'm still having this error.

my current php version is 5.2.5

any help with this issue is greatly appreciated...

if you'd like a more detailed breakdown of my php setup on my web server, you can obtain it here

thanks again...

Does JFTP work ok anywhere else?  Try the media manager, can you upload/delete anything?

I'm also getting this error.  I installed the TMEdit plugin to compare its WYSIWYG features vs. the two editors that are included with the Joomla 1.5 install.  That worked ok.  Then I went to global configuration (as I had yet to make any changes there) to set TMEdit as the default editor plus set my time zone and a few other settings.  I have been unable to make any of those changes to the config file and receive the JFTP error.

I also appears that I can delete items with the media manager but not add any.

I was able to solve my problem! (go figure) I simply opened up the config file in dreamweaver and changed my ftp settings from simply being "localhost" to my actual domain name and that seemed to work. JFTP works fine and so does the SEO and mod_rewrite. I'm extremely happy now... again... go figure :)

Should anyone need help with changing their settings to fix a similar problem, I wouldn't mind being of assistance.
