    Hi
    This may seem like a stupid question, but i cant seem to find the answer in the documentation for plesk. I am using version 7.5.6. I cant work out how to change a single files permission so that it cannot be written to.
    I am running osCommerce and getting this error "Warning: I am able to write to the configuration file: C:\\Inetpub\\vhosts\\krazykrafters.co.nz\\httpdocs\\oscommerce/includes/configure.php. This is a potential security risk - please set the right user permissions on this file".
    I know i am supposed to click on the lock icon next to the file, but nothing i do to any of the users seems to make a difference, and no errors are given.
    Is there any way i can set the file permissions the cPanel and ftp way, eg give a 3 digit number such as 555 and all is done?
    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    You should find C:\\Inetpub\\vhosts\\krazykrafters.co.nz\\httpdocs\\oscommerce/includes/configure.php via Plesk File Manager. Next click its icon Permissions. Next find users IUSR_XXX and clear option Modify for it.

    still cant get it working. If i change the file permissions, they all get set to deny and the site wont load as it cant read the file.
    The current settings are:
    Permissions for krazykrafters Allow Deny
    Full Control - -
    Modify - -
    Read & Execute Y -
    Read Y -
    Write - Y

    What should i be setting them to?

    Permissions for IWAM_plesk(default) (AD)
    Full Control --
    Modify --
    Read & Execute --
    Read Y-
    Write -Y

    if i go into advanced, there seems to be a whole lot of duplicates with the same name but different settings.
