Why do I get "Warning: I am able to write to the configuration file: /path/to/configure.php"?

This is because of the secure php environment on our servers (phpsuexec). This usually happens with OSCommerce and ZenCart web applications.

You need to change the file permissions of both configure.php files to 440 using ssh.

chmod 440 ~/path/to/configure.php

and this warning will go away. You can also use File Manager or FTP.

The files can be found at:

oscommerce_zencart_folder/includes/configure.php
oscommerce_zencart_folder/admin/includes/configure.php
