I am administering a site that once had a Contribute
connection and administrator. There was problems changing the
administrator and having the site think that he was editing when he
wasn't. I deleted the _mm and _baks folders from the entire site,
as well as the _LCK files so that all that is there is the main
files for the site to run.
I have tried creating a connection and it will create the
connection, but only goes as far as the point to insert the
connection information for the ftp and password and such....then
skips directly to enter name and email. It never asks me to locate
a root folder (which seems okay by reading troubleshooting), but it
also never asks me to choose a role.
It won't let me create an administrator because it says it
cannot "save changes to website's shared settings file". When a
user connects to the page, it lets me click edit, but it cannot
save the changes and gives and error message.
I have checked the permissions and they seem fine. I ran the
FTP Server Check and the login was a success, but it said "No such
directory" for all the root, the root/public_html/, etc. The site
is up and running and I can access it via FTP, but I really need to
be able to get Contribute up and running on it.
I am experiencing this same problem. I can create a
connection but this is disabled as soon as I try to edit a page. I
get the error message: "Contribute has disabled your connection to
this website because an unknown error occured. For more information
contact this website's administrator"...well that would be me, if
only Contribute would allow me to set up Administration and User
Profiles on the site, but I just get the same "cannot save changes
to website's shared settings file" message that Monique mentions
I can't tell you how much I'd appreciate any help in
resolving this, as my client is desperate to get their hands on the
site to carry out a load of updates and I need to get it off my
hands asap as I'm really pushed for time.
