Hi,

I have a working installation of limesurvey, uploaded files with ftp
to a public Linux server running cpanel.

The only problem I have seems to be getting write permissions to admin.php.

I have contacted the server admins, and they have turned off mod_security.
They are currently looking into the web server permissions,
in case it's an apache permissions problem, but I was wondering if anyone else
has solved this...other than what's on the forum.

thanks!

Tom

Sounds like a typical permission problem, e.g. if you copy a template the created files belong to the "webserver" user while when uploading data by FTP the owner might be different.

Thanks Mazi,

Quote from the admin at my server who fixed the problem...

added "SecFilterEngine Off" in your .htaccess file.

This might help a few other people, too.

Best regards

Tom
