Windows permissions issue when creating WordPress site
Using Laragon 2.05 on Windows 10, I went to create a new WordPress project as I have done many times. Before completing the installation it asked for administrator rights which I said okay, then it said I didn't have the correct permission!? Now I have a folder sitting in
laragon/wwwwhich I can't open, delete or modify the security settings for? Any ideas?
After googling around and checking this link: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/2928738/how-to-grant-permission-to-users-for-a-directory-using-command-line-in-windows
I have tried the following commands with the command prompt as administrator:
C:\WINDOWS\system32> icacls "C:\laragon\www\wordpress-site" /grant dominic:(OI)(CI)F /T C:\laragon\www\wordpress-site: Access is denied. Successfully processed 0 files; Failed processing 1 files
When I try to modify the security settings I have the following (image below) which all leads to "Access denied" or something to that effect.
Any help would be appreciated!
Just restarted my PC and the folder is no longer there?! I'll upgrade Laragon now and hope this doesn't happen again!
@haakym : When Laragon asking for Administrator right, it wants to add host entry to the hosts file. As the Quick-create feature is idempotent, if you see the same issue, I think you can delete the folder and just try re-creating.
@leokhoa Thanks a lot I'm going to give it another shot now, just installed 2.1.0
Quick question, was I supposed to remove 2.0.5 (apache) before installing 2.1.0 (nginx)? As I just installed on top of it and I still see apache as the server option - no big issue really but just curious!
@haakym : With Laragon, you can use both Apache & Nginx. Apache for legacy apps and Nginx for speed.
When having Apache, Nginx will listen on port 8080 by default. You can change their ports on Menu > Preferences > Services & Ports.
If you don't need Apache or Nginx, just uncheck the service you don't want to use.
So the short answer is you don't need to
