missing directory while probing...

After running the Quick Fix for medium trust the report on the setup/default.aspx page gave me this error:

Could not find a part of the path '\\..\..\..\webroot\Data\Sites\1\GalleryImages\test.config'.

I added a directory GalleryImages and an empty textfile test.config to the directory \1
 

I rerun the set/default.aspx

Now the installation continued.

Are you missing this directory and file in the deploy?

I use: mojo 2295 on Windows (mssql)

 

Thanks,

Roger

Re: missing directory while probing...

No, that error means it tried to create the folder and/or file for you, it writes a test file to make sure file permissions were correct but file permissions were not correct it could not create it. The Data folder and all its child objects must be writable by the web process user so it can create file and folders as needed.

Hope it helps,

Re: missing directory while probing...

So you were right.

Re: missing directory while probing...

Most hosting control panels have a file manager where you can manage permissions. Usually there are 2 users associated with the account, the one the web process runs as and the ftp user. You need to give the web process user write permissions on the Data folder and that must also propagate to all folders and files beneat /Data

Hope it helps,

Joe

Re: missing directory while probing...

Yes I understand.

I gave the helpdesk the set/default.aspx link.

I think they will understand what to do then.

thanks for your help.
