So, I saw that a new version of phpList was released and so I clicked the “phpList Updater” link in the light yellow box at the top of the phpList Dashboard.
It started out okay, saying that v3.6.14 is available and giving me a “Download phpList zip file” button that, when clicked took a few seconds and came up with a “phpList zip file downloaded, now extract the zip file” message and an “Extract zip file” button.
When clicked, that came up with a “phpList zip file extracted, now update the phpList code. A backup of the phpList code will be made in /var/www/phpListBackups” (which is the folder that I specified as the backup location. That has an “Update phpList code” button, but when clicked that brings up the following error:
Failed to remove file “/var/www/html/phpList/admin/Updater.php”: unlink(/var/www/html/phpList/admin/Updater.php): Permission denied.
So I’m thinking that there must be a permission setting that I missed when I initially set this stuff up, but I don’t know enough how to troubleshoot (let alone fix) this sort of thing…any ideas?
