[resolved] 6scan install issues on Zeus and Apache servers (5 posts)

    I'm currently using your plugin on a few sites but I'm having issues installing it on wordpress sites hosted on Zeus and Apache servers.

    When I try to activate it, it gives me the following error:

    6Scan Install Error: Failed creating signature file at WordPress directory /clientdata/apache-www/b/l/bluepharaohmusic.com/www/6scan-signature.php

    I don't have any issues installing it on websites on cpanel hosting. I've contacted my host and this is what they emailed me:

    Write permissions are not allowed to the root folder for cloud
    environments. What i suggest is that you contact the Vendor of the
    Plugin and ask if their plugin is supported on cloud environments which
    do not allow root folder write permissions.

    is there a workaround the root folder permissions?

    Hey Clumzoid,

    Any chance you can tell us which host you're having trouble with? We'll take a look at their configuration and get back to you with more information.

    Good day clumzoid,

    We are checking the matter.
    In the meanwhile, perhaps you could try the next action:
    Open the file admin/includes/common.php , go to line 457, which contains the next string:

    $tmp_fname = untrailingslashit( $dir_name ) . 'sixscantmp_';
    Replace it with the next line:
    $tmp_fname = trailingslashit( $dir_name ) . 'sixscantmp_';
    (Basically remove the "un" part)

    Please tell us whether this works.
