The def file Links.def is not writeable
Okay...I haven't used the editor.cgi script in awhile, but I noticed that all my weight values for the Links and Category tables were reset.

So, when I tried to re-configure the weight values, I get the following error message:

The def file Links.def is not writeable, be sure to set permissions accordingly.


I do have the def folders set to 777:

Code:

drwxrwxrwx 9 anthrote bbsuser 1024 Feb 8 23:35 defs


Code:

drwxrwxrwx 2 anthrote bbsuser 512 Dec 22 19:02 atdigest

I also tried 766 and the same permission error occurred.

And I have the Links.def file set to 666:

Code:

-rw-rw-rw- 1 anthrote bbsuser 2155 May 19 13:43 Links.def


Any ideas why I am getting a permission error in editor.cgi script?

Alternatively, is there a way to use MYSQLMAN to re-configure the INDEX weight values? If so, would someone be so kind as to point me in the right direction...

Thanks in advance!
