I am trying to install Prestashop on a Dreamhost server. I have followed the instructions here:
to allow friendly urls which seems to have worked properly.
The problem I have is I get an error during the “System and permissions” stage of installation. “Write permissions on folders and subfolders/recursively: /themes/prestashop/lang” comes up as red and wont allow me to continue.
I have tried chmod 777 on that folder and all the files in it which didnt work so I deleted the folder, recreated it, chmodded it then added the files back in which also didnt work.
