Default Fedora core 4 Joomla! issues

I have working well a ispconfig server with no problems and I am trying to install Joomla! CMS system on one of the sites. The server only holds two sites one being a family site(the one i want to use Joomla! on ). i have a couple of questions which i will put forward to the forum and they are,

1) if i use chmod 777 web/* on the folder with joomla in to set the directory and file permissions does this just affect the security of the site and how? Or does it affect the security of the whole server and why?

2) i have a problem with save session path it says Unwriteable and NOT SET. any ideas? Joomla! install screen Output below!

PHP version >= 4.1.0 Yes
- zlib compression support Available
- XML support Available
- MySQL support Available
configuration.php Writeable
Session save path Unwriteable
Not set

Thanks in advance

Bill

1) This affects just the security of this site. If you run this just as a family server and maintain all your sites yourself, I dont see a big problem with that.

2) is the phptemp directory inside the website root directoy writable for the user of your apache webserver?

Yes Falko i have used this tutorial for the install and i have read most if not all the threads on the forge about joomla, but i still have the problem with session.save path saying not set and unwriteable everything else is OK chmod 777 a few of the directories which sorted out all the other problems but this needs sorting i would assume.

Any Fedora-ispconfig-joomla install experience would be fantastic
or someone who has rectified this fault?


when this is sorted i will send you a step-by-step if you like?

Kind regards

Bill

What's the value of session.save path in your php.ini?
Did you set session.save path somewhere else, too (maybe in the vhost configuration of that web site or an .htaccess file)?

sorry for the very late reply 4 kids 2 sick!

anyway,

session.save_path = "/var/lib/php/session"

should this folder ......./session have 777 permissions as well?

also cant find .htaccess

Yes, or change session.save_path to /tmp (I think that's the default value for most distributions).
