Flex Microsoft server installAugust 5, 2008 @ 9:40am
Hi David, Otter;

I'm trying to install Flex on a Microsoft server and am having problems on step 3 of the install (http://xxxxx.com/install.php?3)

I haven't installed Flex on a many windows servers and this one seems pretty restrictive. I'm thinking the difficulty might be related to proper settings in the .htaccess file.

For example, when Flex is creating it's directories during the install I see this type of message:


Quote

Directories Created:
Warning: chmod() [function.chmod]: No such file or directory in /web/install.php on line 534

Warning: chmod() [function.chmod]: No such file or directory in /web/install.php on line 534

Warning: chmod() [function.chmod]: No such file or directory in /web/install.php on line 534


When Flex is creating it's files, I see messages such as:


Code

Files Created:
Warning: fopen(./backups/index.html) [function.fopen]: failed to open stream: Permission denied in /web/install.php on line 552

Warning: fwrite(): supplied argument is not a valid stream resource in /web/install.php on line 553

Warning: fclose(): supplied argument is not a valid stream resource in /web/install.php on line 554

Warning: chmod() [function.chmod]: No such file or directory in /web/install.php on line 555

Warning: fopen(./images/admin/admincp_account.gif) [function.fopen]: failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /web/install.php on line 552


In order to have the server recognize .php files at all, we had to create an .htaccess file with the following entries:


Code

<Limit GET POST PUT DELETE HEAD>
require anymember
</Limit>
ForceNoProxy On


Any suggestions or ideas are greatly appreciated.

If we can get the basic system configured the guy is anxious to purchase a full license from y'all.

Thanks!

Hi Wolf,

I don't have much experience using Windows for web serving. Is it possible this folder is set to read only, or the web server isn't granted permission to write to it? It's not quite the same as Unix in how the permissions are granted.

Aside from that, I think your best bet would be to contact the server owner/administrator or hosting company and see what they can do for you. They should know how they set it up and can tell you pretty quickly what you need to change or what you won't be able to do, rather than trying a ton of different guesses to see what happens.
