Hi There,

Just trying to install SIlverstripe 2.4 locally using MAMP for the first time and am getting a permissions error on the install page:

User 'username' needs to be able to write to this file:

After reading the forums I've tried the following:
- Creating a .htaccess file
- Giving it full 777 rights

But so far no joy - any ideas on what I might be doing wrong?
