    When I create a new style with the store templates as files option activated, I get this message:

    the template directory have no permissions

    mike, kier shouldn't you throw here an error/notice so the users knows he have to set the permissions manual?

            protected function _createTemplateDirectory()
                if (!
    is_dir($this->_path)) {
                    if (
    XenForo_Helper_File::createDirectory($this->_path)) {

    Quick fix for everyone:

    make this folder 0775 writeable: /internal_data/templates

    You should never have to - it's a requirement that the internal_data directory itself is writable by the webserver. As such, I'm not sure why this would occur without that.

    Marcus, did you move servers or anything like that recently?

    Today I activated CDN by pointing both domain.net as sub.domain.com to my forum domain.com, pointed these domains directly to /internal_data and first activated sub.domain.com and since then I use domain.net.

    I noticed this behavior short after. Ragtek pointed me to the directory permissions. Whenever I put permissions to 0775 it worked and when turned again to 0755 it did not work.

    Now it also works with 0755.

    I reproduced this bug when creating a new template in debug to a custom addon.

    When creating the template I got this error message
    I disabled the acp>store template as files option
    I could create the new template in debug modus
    I enabled the acp>store template as files option
    I got this error message
    I changed directory permissions to 777
    It works

    Depending on your server settings on some servers 755 won't work for the data directories you have to use 777 for them. I know on my server the webserver runs as nobody which means for data I have to go with 777, if it's running as a user, as long as that user is the owner of the files you can go with 755.

    After a PLESK update today I experienced the same problem again. I changed permissions of internal data directory to 0777 it worked. I changed them back to 0755 and it works now.

    The other parts of my internal_data directory can not be written to after my Plesk Update. Now I had to 0777 all these subforums and even the sub-subforums for the attachments.
