Permissions to Local Disk

Posted: 04-25-2008, 05:09 AM
Hi... I've just installed apache on my computer and it is saved under local
disk/C, program files, apache. I am supposed to save a php file in an apache
subfolder, however I get the following dialog box:

"...You don't have permissions to save in this location. Please contact the
administrator to obtain permission."

I am the administrator, and nowhere in my computer can I find a the option
to set the permissions up in Program Files under C:. Where/how do I change
the setting, so that I can save in this location?

Thank you.

Hello Chelsea,
Use the link below. It's called " take ownership of an item ". After
you have it installed, right click on the file in question, click Take
Ownership, then proceed .

Please inform if it works or not.

You've already seen that the Program Files folder is heavily restricted. In
Vista, when you install a program and the program has to write configuration
files to it's own folder, another folder for that program will be created
and associated with that program. When you select the Apache Program
Files\Apaches folder, look on the Command Bar in Windows Explorer for a
button called 'Compatibility Files'.

Click on this button and the folder where this program will store it
configuration information will open. This folder will be in your user
accounts folder. The location will be:

C:\Users\your name\AppData\Local\Virtual Store\Program
Files\Apache\SubFolder.

Storing these files in this location will maintain the integrity of the
Program Files folder.
