To grant this write access, use the following commands:
chmod -R 775 /source/export chmod -R 775 /source/log chmod -R 775 /source/out/pictures chmod -R 775 /source/out/media chmod -R 775 /source/tmp

To enable write access for the setup, execute the following commands:
chmod 777 /source/Setup chmod 777 /source/config.inc.php chmod 777 /source/.htaccess

Setting file and directory permissions correctly is crucial to keeping your OXID eShop running safely and stably.
