when installing 3x.ocmod extension this error occurs:

"The directory catalog/model/account is not allowed to be written to!"

That folder only has php files and of course should be read only, so I don't know why this extension installer tries to write something there.

To test, I have set 777 permission to that folder and the same error occurs.

Don't ever set 777 permissions! If you need to set full read/write find a new host.

In regard to your error -

Contact the extension developer you can see here the allowed directories in OC 3.0.2 ... #L124-L141

Code: Select all

// A list of allowed directories to be written to
$allowed = array(

Backup and [ learn how to recover ] before you make any changes.

I have set 777 permissions only for test, of course, but that was not the problem since the same error occured.

Finally I have manually uploaded all files into opencart directories.... some thing took my attention. Most of files already existed in the folders.

I will contact developer.

I also have the same problem.

My cPanel virtual host do not need to set 777 read and write permissions, But when I upload and install the language or extensions, I get an error message.

How can I solve this problem?
