FTP Enabled But Directory Status Unwritable

Post by cashflw » Sat Feb 09, 2008 7:33 am

I enabled FTP in 1.5 stable. I can save changes to the configuration file and edit template files through the backend even though it says unwritable on those pages. It will not let me upload pictures and when I go to Help->System Info->Directory Permissions, it says all folders are unwritable. I have added many extensions without a problem. I can't get picture uploads to work unless I chmod 0777 on those directories. All my directories are currently 0755.

I'm having the same problem. Been searching for an answer for a couple hours to no avail yet.  I haven't done a Joomla/Mambo installation in over a year, so I don't know if this is a Host Server set-up issue, or specific to Joomla 1.5.  Any potential things to check / look for set?

Many thanks in advance.  :)
