Protecting directory causes error...

Postby network23 » Wed Jan 29, 2003 9:36 am

I've set up phpMyAdmin on a Windows 2000 box running IIS (not my choice). It appears to run just fine, but as strongly suggested in the docs, I should protect the directory so as to prevent others messing about with the db's.

Whenever we try to protect the directory however, when we get past the security, phpMyAdmin refuses to run, giving us this error:

Fatal error: Failed opening required './libraries/grab_globals.lib.pp' (include_path='.;c:\php4\pear') in D:\path\to\phpmyadmin

It may be helpful to know that when I run phpinfo, phpinfo runs just fine, but this is at the top of the result document...

Warning: Failed opening 'arttest.htm' for inclusion (include_path='.;c:\php4\pear') in D:\path\to\phpinfo.php on line 8

I'd also love to know what causes the above error and how to correct it.

It depends on which pemissions you gave.
You should allow at least read.
What did you changed exactly?
