i just installed EE 2.8.0 on a server running php cli. It seems that this is causing issues with creating new templates & uploading files in general.

Hosting provider is not willing to make any changes. Any ideas?

  • In what way is the CLI causing issues with templates? It seems unlikely that is the cause of your problems. – foamcow Sep 19 '14 at 13:52
  • i can not create/upload files due to file permission issues. Only via ftp. Is there anything i can change through ee to bypass this? – Sotos Sep 22 '14 at 8:51
  • Unless I'm very much mistaken this has nothing at all to do with PHP's CLI. You can change folder/file permissions as necessary via FTP. If you have any kind of Shell access you can also do it with that. – foamcow Sep 22 '14 at 9:22
  • Is there a way to handle ftp connection via EE control panel or any setting in the config file? – Sotos Sep 22 '14 at 9:29
  • Sorry, I don't understand what you are asking. Why would you want, or need, to control an FTP connection via the site's control panel? I think you need to rethink your question and explain exactly what you are trying to do because I think you're going about it in the wrong way. – foamcow Sep 22 '14 at 9:35

This is a permissions problem unrelated to the original question as it was asked.

The solution is to set the read/write permissions for the template directory via FTP (or shell access) which will allow EE to create template files as required.

  • although i know this is usually the solution not this time. – Sotos Sep 22 '14 at 10:20
