I'm trying run a Contao Web CMS www.contao.org on a Business Hosting and Email account.
The installation fails because Contao is not able to modify files by itself, so the configuration file is not writable. (this should be a permission problem). I think this problem is also well-known from Wordpress, especially when trying to install plugins.
The official solution is, providing FTP connection data for Contao. I did this many times, it's the best working solution for all webhosters i've tried so far. But not now
I asked for help in the german Contao support Forum and just got to know, that the PHP function ftp_connect is not enabled on myhosting.com (or some account types) Is that true???
Enabling this funtion might solve my problem. I already tried to contact the support via ticket - but my ticket disappeared and never got answered. Phone support also wasnt very helpful, i wasted my time explaining, that i'm not talking about a FTP connection using my desktop client! (i have no problems doing that, btw)
Error message in browser window:
Is there anyone who has an idea how to solve this problem? I would be so... )))))))))
Fatal error: Uncaught exception Exception with message Could not connect to the FTP server thrown in /usr/local/pem/vhosts/113951/webspace/httpdocs/mydomain.biz/system/libraries/FTP.php on line 104
Many thanks, Annika
