Failed to install Joomla 3.8.7 on localhost

Post by justibatata2810 » Sat Nov 03, 2018 5:31 am

Hi, Everyone !
I am experiencing this error when installing joomla 3.8.7:
"Your configuration file or folder is not writable or there was a problem creating the configuration file. You will have to upload the following code by hand. Select in the text area to highlight all of the code and then paste into a new text file. Name this file 'configuration.php' and upload it to your site root folder."
Can you help me ?

Why do you install an outdated version of Joomla? The current version is 3.9.0

You have file permission issues on your server. To know more about your server, please post the FPA. See the pred box above.

Assuming Windows O/S on local PC, - in windows, right click the folder, and change its properties to 'writable'. Same with any files inside the folder, right click the file, change its properties to 'writable'.

If not Windows, do the same thing above, the equivalent commands, for your operating system.
