warning message on front page of website
Posted 27 November 2011 - 04:35 PM
I have had this warning on the front page of my website now for 6 days.
Warning: I am able to write to the configuration file: /home/dogsup5/public_html/shop/includes/configure.php. This is a potential security risk - please set the right user permissions on this file.
I have informed the programmer/developer but have not received an answer regarding this.
My question: not sure how much longer this will take to get fixed, how much should I worry about it? Besides the fact that my site has not had a sale since this mess started (10 days ago), what other damage can someone do to my site?

catalog / includes / configure.php
catalog / admin / includes / configure.php
if you do not have catalog then ignore that part
you need to set the permissions to 444

Once that frightening warning is off your pages, perhaps your customers will start buying again. It's not unheard of for customers to be scared away by this warning.
