QuikStore Directory / File Permissions

While the Installation Wizard will make every effort to automatically set the directory and file permissions during the installation process, some servers will not allow it. So, you may need to set the directory and file permissions manually. In many cases, you will probably have your Host do this for you.

Listed below are the Quikstore file permission settings for both UNIX and NT/2000 servers.

Note:  All the Directory listings below are located in your /home/username/www/cgi-bin directory or your Document Root/cgi-bin directory.


UNIX Servers:

Directory and file permission settings are really quite simple. ALL files are 755 (read,execute) EXCEPT the following directories:

These directories are set to 777 (read,write,execute)


NT Servers:

NOTE: Unless you happen to be the server administrator or owner of the web server, you will be unable to set the file permissions on an NT/2000 server yourself.   They must be set by someone with administrative access to the server.  So, if you are getting errors, you will have to ask your hosting service to set the permissions for the QuikStore program files and folders.

NT/2000 Servers are basically the same as UNIX servers. ALL files are 755 (read,execute) EXCEPT the following directories:

These directories are set to the NT/2000 equivalent of 777:

(read,write,delete,execute)

NOTE: Delete permissions must be allowed in the user_carts directory so that the program can delete old cart files.
