FAQ: How can I avoid having to upload configuration.php in a manual install?

Post by leolam » Fri Sep 15, 2006 3:37 am

If you manually install Joomla you will get a message during installation that the configuration.php is not writable and the installation process provides you with the entire configuration.php which you have to copy/paste to an editor and upload and name configuration.php to complete installation.

1. upload your core files to the directory of the server where you want to install Joomla
2. create an empty configuration.php (either using your filemenager or editing locally and uploading) in the same folder as the Joomla! root.
3. do the Joomla! installation.

The configuration.php is now written directly in the file system. Make sure the configuration.php is afterwards set to 444 or 644 (not writable) to protect your system
