Configuration errors that show up trying to install, anyone any ideas?
â¢ Path “/Applications/XAMPP/xamppfiles/htdocs/magento/app/etc” must be writable.
â¢ Path “/Applications/XAMPP/xamppfiles/htdocs/magento/var” must be writable.
â¢ Path “/Applications/XAMPP/xamppfiles/htdocs/magento/media” must be writable.
I have no idea how you do this on a Mac, but the permission for those directories and the files in them need to be set as I suggested.
On a remote server, this is done from a command line or through an ftp client.
In Windows it would be through Explorer.
Mac? No idea, sorry!
Perhaps someone else will share their knowledge, or you could Google for ‘change file permissions Mac’ or similar.
I have the exact same problem as this. I’m trying to install Magento 1.7.2 on Mac OSX 10.6.8 using XAMPP.
I tried setting the permissions of the specified files (using command + i) to “Read & Write\” for all the files as indicated but then every time I refresh the Magento control panel after setting permissions it gives me more files to make writable. Eventually after going through all of those it asks to make DS_Store files writable (which you can’t directly see on Mac OSX).
