Joomla v1.5 (latest build)
physical path: public_html/joomla
is hosted on a university web server:
OS: SunOS 5.1; build date Feb 2005
Server API: Apache 2.0
I don't have root or super user privs. Also the policy allows only secure FTP or SSH (e.g. Puty) to my public_html dir. Hence, the Joomla v1.5 FTP layer will not work and my motivation to use a Joomla backend file management extension.
The web server does not run suPHP (i.e. PHP scripts are run under the WWW user:group). I unzipped the Joomla install locally, then uploaded all contents via sftp. Ran the install procedure, no issues, and have a working site. I requested the web admin to chown the Joomla folder recursively to www:www. After that I can install extensions, such as Ninja Xplorer.
Xplorer appears to work but there is a persistent error at the top of the GUI. Is this an issue?
