Configuring joolma3 from Windows 10 machine

Post by Gerard_S » Sat Jan 20, 2018 4:12 pm

I never used and therefore obviously never installed joomla before. I did the actual installation on a FreeBSD-11 machine. Now I want to actually work with it from a Windows 10 PC.

During the installation, I receive these error messages:

Warning
You are trying to use a database host which is not on your local server. For security reasons, you need to verify the ownership of your web hosting account. Please read the documentation for more information.
Error
We were not able to create the file. Please manually create a file named "_JoomlaTo3tKTBxJVhNvbdQZomEm.txt" and upload it to the "installation" folder of your Joomla site.

This is from the Apche24 log:

[Sat Jan 20 10:48:31.197932 2018] [:error] [pid 96580] [client 174.109.224.43:29989] PHP Warning: file_put_contents(/usr/local/www/joomla3/installation/_JoomlaTo3tKTBxJVhNvbdQZomEm.txt): failed to open stream: Permission denied in /usr/local/www/joomla3/libraries/joomla/filesystem/file.php on line 440, referer: https://www.seibercom.net/joomla/installation/index.php

I did create the file as directed, but it did not make any difference.

I am hoping someone can tell me what I am doing wrong.

Are you using a local server environment, e.g. XAMPP?
