      Hi,

      In order to install OrangeHRM successfully using the in-built web-installer, the web-installer needs to create the Configuration file (Conf.php) within <orangehrm-dir>/lib/confs/

      Note:
      Since it is most probably a file permission problem, I assume you have deployed OrangeHRM on Linux/XNIX distro.

      To fix the problem you have to do two things;

      set the ownership of the directory(s) to the Apache server's User-name, User Group. (ex: apache, nobody)

      set the permission of the directory(s) to 755

      Regards,

      Koshika Surasena[/b]

      I'm just noticing that neither the screen itself nor the Help mentions specifically this information. Help should be amended, but really if the path was just mentioned on the check screen that would make the most sense.

      Hi,

      I totally agree with your suggestion. I think the remedy for the situation should be both mentioned on the screen as well as the Installation Guide.

      I have reported documentation bugs against the issue, and thanks again for supporting us to make our product better.

      Regards,

      I am having the same issue. Can some post the EXACT commands I have to do in Linux/UNIX? I am somewhat of a novice at this.

      Thank you.

      Figured it out myself. Needed to Cahne the conf-auto file to Conf.php and then Chmod it. I must be the guru I suppose.
