First off, I am really happy to have found a BSD licensed CMS! Nice work!
----------------------
re: The temporary folder isn't writeable!

I have been searching, and I cannot find the temporary folder to change the permissions. Where is the temporary folder?

Also. In terms of permissions, what is the usual chmod setting for the silverstripe-v2.0 folder? + For the temporary folder (once I find it).

I tried 754, 755, 764 and 765. I only got past the permissions when I set the silverstripe-v2.0 folder to chmod 777. I do not like opening the folder up so wide. What is the normal practice?

To solve the temporary folder not writealbe issue I got into the install.php file to find the temporary folder.

######################################

if(!is_writeable(dirname(tempnam('adfadsfdas','')))) {

         $this->error(array("File permissions", "Is the temporary folder writeable?", "The temporary folder isn't writeable!"));

      }

######################################

I created the folder adfadsfdas in the silverstripe-v2.0 folder and set the permissions to global read write and execute.

mkdir adfadsfdas
chown username adfadsfdas
chmod 777 adfadsfdas

This got me passed this configuration setting.

We'll update the installer so that the error message provides more instruction - including telling you which folder is the temp folder! :-)

I have the same problem. I already make a folder "adfadsfdas" in the base folder and set the permissions to 777 but the installer still telling the same: The temporary folder isn't writeable!

I hope you can help me ! My website:

Hi,

I had this problem, too. In the end I discovered it was due to open_basedir restrictions in httpd.conf preventing access to /tmp/

I hope this helps someone else...
