Tiki Installation Permission Check

Installation Problems?

check required filesystem permissions for your webserver

This page should always be visible, independent from any installation problems with Tiki. If the Tiki installer does not run properly, this effect may be caused by some permission problems (some problems may be caused by webserver settings regarding htaccess or PHP settings regarding memory limit). There are many different use cases, thus there is no default permission setting which works in all cases and provides an appropriate security level.

PHP check: PHP works

permission not granted

enable permission by running
sh prepare_permissioncheck.sh enable
in Tiki's document root

or (not recommended) enable permission (setting: yes) by copying file
to file

Do not edit those files - different line ending conventions (Mac,Unix,Windows) matter


disable permission check on production machines
