Problem securing the templates_c directory

Recommended Posts


I had installed whcms, and followed the chapter "securing the whcms installation".. everything was fine, until I tried to move the templates_c directory to above the public_html directory..

I had moved that directory to: /home/webstower/whcms/templates_c

added to the configuration.php the line with the new path:
$templates_compiledir = '/home/webstower/whcms/templates_c/';

But now, when I try to access to the admin area, the whcms show me the following error:
Permissions Error
The templates compiling directory '/home/webstower/whcms/templates_c' must be writeable (CHMOD 777) before you can continue.
If the path shown is incorrect, you can update it in the configuration.php file.

Im sure that I had choosed the right permission for that directory, I send you a capture.. what can be wrong?

This is my configuration.php content:
$license = 'notshowed';
$db_host = 'localhost';
$db_port = '';
$db_username = 'notshowed';
$db_password = 'notshowed';
$db_name = 'notshowed';
$cc_encryption_hash = 'notshowed';
$templates_compiledir = '/home/notshowed/whcms/templates_c/';
$mysql_charset = 'utf8';
$customadminpath = "wwwadmin";
