Banning files from being written by server (3 posts)

    Hi, I'm using a WordPress plugin called WP e-commerce. My problem is that an error_log file keeps being created in a folder where nothing is allowed to be but the files that were there originally. It causes errors on my website so I have to keep deleting the error log every couple of weeks.

    I've tried stopping the error_log from appearing via the php.ini file. It did not work. My question is, if I set my folders permissions to 555 (so that it is not writable) will this also stop the server creating an error_log file in that folder?

    Many thanks!

    umm, why do you want to disable error_logs? theyre infinitely useful, and do absolutely NO harm.

    your mucking about with things, changing permissions and whatnot, is apt to cause more trouble than allowing your error_logs to do what they need to do.
