PS3 & PowerStoreConnection.php file privileges

PS3 & PowerStoreConnection.php file privileges

I've installed PS3 on my remote host and I now want to install it on a local computer to make edits.

Following the suggested work flow given by Jason Byrnes in a previous post, I need to make the PowerStoreConnection.php file read only to stop DW overwriting the connection settings.

My first question is which version of the file, the one on my remote host or the one on my local computer? My second question is make who read only, the Owner, Group or Public?

Please note, I have tried to change the attributes on my remote host using FileZilla but with no apparent luck. That is, when I unchecked the Owner permissions to leave it at read only, the changes were not saved. (There were no Group permissions set and Public permissions are set to read only - a numeric value of 604.)

Hoping someone can help me with this, many thanks in advance.

He is probably talking about making them both read-only since overwriting either would break the other.

Another technique is to store a backup of both connection files and then just try not to update them.. if you ever do then you'll get a connection error and you can quickly copy and paste the correct settings from your backup.

The readonly technique sounds maybe better since you don't have to worry about ever overwriting it by accident, but the second technique covers you if you do.

Thanks for the reply, Ray. At this point in time I have no problem making the local copy of the file read only but I can't manage it with the remote copy. My ISP is looking into this problem for me as they say it should be possible.

Now as to your other suggestion about a backup. I've no problem backing up the local site but - and I know this is going to sound pathetic - how do I back up the remote site? I've looked in DW and FileZilla and there doesn't seem to be a way in either of these programmes to copy the files on the remote server. So, any help with this will be greatly appreciated.

Go to your local connections folder and rename the file that is there:

Connection.php becomes Connection_Local.php

Then Download the remote one and save it as Connection_Remote.php

Now open Connection_Local.php and save it as Connection.php.

Now you should have a local connection folder and a backup of both the local and root connection in case you overwrite one or the other.
