i am trying to install the new silverstripe.var.2.3.6 on my live server. unfortunately i get the following message when i click -> cms-edit:

Warning: require_once(/www/htdocs/xxx/lepus/mysite/_config.php) [function.require-once]: failed to open stream: Permission denied in /tmp/silverstripe-cache-www-htdocs-xxx-lepus/manifest-main on line 6060

Fatal error: require_once() [function.require]: Failed opening required '/www/htdocs/xxx/lepus/mysite/_config.php' (include_path='.:/usr/share/php:..') in /tmp/silverstripe-cache-www-htdocs-xxx-lepus/manifest-main on line 6060

i have tried it three times.
the installation.php works that means that i come to the input form Database / password and so on, but when i recall the
i allways get Permission denied / you dont have the .. on this server.

had somebody else these problem?. i dont know what the problem is, i am a beginner in php so it is an enigma to me.
it always worked!!! normal index.html works wery well ... i am very confused !!!

thanks for your help or suggestions!
(sorry for my bad englisch, i am workin on it :) ....)

This directory needs to have write permissions for the web server/SilverStripe to get in and start putting temporary files that it needs to cache. Try running this command on your server: "chmod 777 -R /tmp/silverstripe-cache-www-htdocs-xxx-lepus/"
