PowerCMS Installation Wizard fails on Step 1checking file permissions

PowerCMS Installation Wizard fails on Step 1checking file permissions

I created a generic site in Site Builder so that I can play around with PowerCMS and setup a demo for a partner to check out. I highlighted the text between the div tag with id of top navigation, then go to webassist,cms, add content to powercms. I create my datasource using the define, and complete the wizard. All files got uploaded, including the connection defined in the connections folder via ftp successfuly.

However, when I go to the website to do the initial installation I get the following error after doing the File Permissions check:Files and directories cannot be created. Verify the ../ directory has write permissions on your server.
Please make sure the ../Connections folder has write permissions on your server.

How can this fail, if I was able to upload the files onto the remote server?

Thank you in advance for any assistance I get,
Charles

PowerCMS Installation Error Fixed

After doing a lot of research and looking at the php error log, I found out that I php's mkdir function did not have permission to create the file not due to a windows file permission problem, but do to a php setting for open_basedir. I had to include the path for the root of my directory at the end of the setting defined.
