Foswiki configure reports permission errors.png
Errors in configure

It is minor and I am not sure if it will be an Extension or an Engine issue at the end. But from what I see the current permissions of these files trigger an error in configure although the permission are not necessarily wrong they are just not writable by the owner. Maybe just make them writable for the user (755).

The MANIFEST files have permissions of 0444 for these files. Anything in the data or pub directories should be 0644.

Ok, so the manifest needs to be fixed for these files.

I tried to upgrade the BookmakerPlugin but it hangs in my installation after showing the Foswiki Logo. I first thought it is an issue with my installation but I do not have such issue e.g. with the TocPlugin. Is this reproducible on other installations?

-- IngoKappler - 20 Apr 2011

BookmakerPlugin installed okay here. Can you try it from the command line? The first thing after the logo, the installer file is downloaded. There might be more information visible from the shell.
   cd [root of foswiki install]
   perl tools/extension_installer BookmakerPlugin

-- GeorgeClark - 20 Apr 2011

Installing it from command line worked perfectly. After that a reinstall from the configure interface also worked again. I guess something was broken in the previous BookmakerPlugin causing the hanging in my installation only.
