Support » Installing WordPress » failed to open stream

  • Hello all.
    Installed WP on my linux server (isp) without a hitch.
    Doing it now on a windows box (win 2000 server) and getting the following errors – any clues?
    Cheers,
    Sean.

  • permissions issue. I hate MS. It’s just not….well, unix!
    Sorry for wasting space.
    Cheers,
    Sean.

    I’m getting this message too for my cache directory (which is just a folder right?) but I’ve given my cache permissions to write. It still gives me this same error. what did you do to fix it?

    any body know how to fix this .. I am using PLESK and can not see what I have to do to change permission… is there a file or a directory that I have to CHMOD?

    Did anybody find a solution to this yet?

    I am installing on a Windows 2003 server (IIS) and am getting “fwrite(): supplied argument is not a valid stream resource” about 4,000 times but at the end it says it was a successful install. (?)

    As motionid said, it’s a MS permission-thing. Here’s the quick and dirty solution — fine for development sites, but NOT for real world: right click on the folder where you have WordPress on your computer, go to Properties, make sure that Web Anonymous User has both Read AND WRITE access. (The default is to not allow write access.) Hope that helps somebody get started…

    I have a soloution, I think

    Go to the folder > Right Click > Properties > Highlight the Security Tab > Click Add.. > Type IUSR_!insert your server name here! > Check the Modify Permission for that user > OK > OK

    Does it work?
