Access Issue to Data folder on Windows Server
I'm having problems with create / write permissions to the photopost/data folder. I keep getting a message to this effect at the last stage of installation. I'm on a Windows server. I've tried setting folder permissions for scripts, browsing and program execution but without any success. My understanding is that the folder is definitely writeable.
There is no issue with the MYSQL database as the tables create successfully. Do you have any recommendations on how get past this permissions on the photopost/data folder on a Windows server?
It's also a little troublesome that the warning message is consistently missing a back slash prior to my domain name and the first letter of my domain name.
On further work on this problem, the program defaulted back slashes for the location of the photopost/data folder. When all back slashes are changed to front slashes, the install proceeds and completes. However the admin control panel cannot be accessed. All the error messages indicate the program is still using backslashes elsewhere, specifically in trying to locate header-inc.php and global.php on login. The program code defaults to backslash instead of frontslash and so nothing runs.
Thanks for any advice.
