Fatal error: Root site directory have to be readable and writable


#1

Hi, I too have been reading similar posts but the answers could not resolve this HTTP ERROR 500 for me.

MY URL: https://www.conhagen.com/admin.php
PHP 7.1.9
sitecake 2.4.8

PHP Info here:
https://www.conhagen.com/phpinfo.php

I get the error
Fatal error: Root site directory have to be readable and writable. in D:\INETPUB\VHOSTS\conhagen.com\httpdocs\sitecake\2.4.8\config\requirements.php on line 27

I have made the permissions 777 on the root folder.
I also tried uncommenting and entering ftp credentials in default.php
I created a .scignore file

I don’t know what I’m missing at this point. Any help would be great!

Found out the issue. I needed the .scignore or it would time out, but I had “sitecake” as one of the directories to ignore… so 500 error.

Removed sitecake directory from .scignore and it’s working fine now.
