I'm trying to restore a Wordpress site backed up with XCloner to a GoDaddy Windows hosting account. The situation is a bit urgent, as it's a recreation of an original site that's about to go down.

I get the following message every time I click “Start Install” from the xcloner.php script:

“Warning: fopen(D:/Hosting/7835216/html/wp-config.php) [function.fopen]: failed to open stream: Permission denied in D:\Hosting\7835216\html\XCloner.php on line 599
Unable to write to configuration file D:/Hosting/7835216/html/wp-config.php… Aborting…”

I've dug through the wiki, searched through these forums, and tried everything I can. I've put the archive and script in a different, clean folder. I've tried different file permissions. I've tried “Restore by using the server utilities(tar)”, I've tried manually unzipping the files and uploading them and doing “Skip files restore”. Everything results in that error.

This is what's on line 599 of the script, which the error is referencing:

if ($fp = fopen($file, “w”)) {
fwrite( $fp, $config_data);
fclose( $fp );
} else {
return false;
} // if
 return true;

if ($fp = fopen($file, “w”)) { fwrite( $fp, $config_data); fclose( $fp ); } else { return false; } // if return true;”

Any suggestions? I really need to get this up asap.

Thanks.

You need to make the D:/Hosting/7835216/html/ folder writeable by all users, you can switch it back when done!

 

Hope it helps!

Thanks. I did just set the permissions to 777 on everthing in the directory and am getting the same error. Any other ideas?

I would advise editing your wp-config.php mysql details, did the mysql restore go through?
