    php error on installation Link to this post


    Following some permission problems with a previous installation I have deleted SS and reinstalled everything, however I am now seeing the following error message below when I go to my domain URL to start the installation.
    Any help much appreciated!

    Warning: fopen(/tmp/silverstripe-cache-home-rogereva-public_html/manifest-main) [function.fopen]: failed to open stream: Permission denied in /home/rogereva/public_html/sapphire/core/ManifestBuilder.php on line 120

    Fatal error: Cannot write manifest file! Check permissions of /tmp/silverstripe-cache-home-rogereva-public_html/manifest-main in /home/rogereva/public_html/sapphire/core/ManifestBuilder.php on line 124

    Looks like some write permission issue in your tmp directory /tmp/silverstripe-cache-home-rogereva-public_html/. If you are on shared hosting you'd probably need to take that up with your provider.

    Easier and better (I find): create a silverstripe-cache directory in the root of your website, make it writable, and do a ?flush=1. SilverStripe will now use that directory to write its manifest.
