Cannot Browse Server and Lorem Ipsum text

Hello Support,
I have two items I need help with:

1. Just installed version 1.0.2 (new install) and cannot browse files on the server (in the editor). Getting the following error when trying to browse images or links:

error: "../../../../files/" could not be created

2. When I select an existing image and click the "Insert/Edit Image" button (to get the properties) the preview box shows the image with some "Lorem ipsum" dummy text underneath (even though this text is not on the site). Why does this dummy text appear there?

I have "PHP safe mode" turned off on the server.

Please advise.

Thanks,
Marek

The first error indicated that you don't have permission in the PowerCMS folder to create a folder. Try changing the permission on your cms folder.

in regard to the second question, the dummy text is just for preview purposes, so it gives you an idea of how the image is going to look if surrounded with text.

Cannot Browse Server and Lorem Ipsum text

Thanks Dani.

I didn't see anything in the documentation about setting permissions. Can you please direct me to where I can find this information or explain the permission settings here?

Also - when I tried to upload a new image I get the following error:

"Error creating folder: ...../httpdocs/CMS/files (Permission denied)"

I understand this also has to do with the permission issue, but why is PowerCMS trying to create a "files" directory in the "CMS" folder? I want it upload images into the "images" folder on the site root (where the rest of the images are). I also want it to browse the regular "images" folder on the site's root. How do I change these settings?

Please advise.

Thanks.
Marek

Jimmy-
I know how to change permissions.

Can you please give me details on what permissions need to be changed specifically in PowerCMS? Why is this information not included in the documentation?

Thanks.

The Owner group should have Read, Write and Execute permissions. the User/group and Everyone user should be given Read and Write privileges.

Thanks. This is just for the "files" folder (inside CMS)?

the images folder too, any folder that Power CMS will try to write to needs to have write permissions granted for all users.

Jason,
The CMS actually adds images to the "files" folder (or the "cms_files" sub-folder).

showthread.php?t=10147

I was just wondering if there are any other folders it writes to (since this is not mentioned in the documentation at all for some strange reason).

Thanks for your help.
