I want to install WHMCS on my VPS server it has PHP 5.6.=

But when I begin the install process it's tells me not to have write permissions in configuration and some other maps.

I did "chmod 777 *" in the folder. And manually choose everything to be 777 perms with my sftp client.

But still givin me the same error, maybe I need to upgrade my php to 7?

Hi @IzzyMichiel,

You can test this independent of WHMCS with a little test script like this:

$filename = 'configuration.php';
if (is_writable($filename)) {
    echo 'The file is writable';
} else {
    echo 'The file is not writable';

Upload to your WHMCS directory and visit in your browser.

If this simple script confirms the installer's assertions, it would be necessary to work with your server admin/hosting provider to adjust the file/folder permissions and ownership so they can be written by a PHP script.
