Could not create directory: ../CertSage

How to fix this problem?

My domain is:

I open this site:

It produced this output:

My web server is bebian 10.

I can login to a root shell on my machine

I'm not using a control panel to manage my site.

The version of my client is CerSage 1.41


@griffin Could you perhaps take a look at this?


Hi. :slightly_smiling_face:

Author of CertSage here.

By default, CertSage is configured, in a way, to be optimal for cPanel hosting, which in this case means that it tries to create its data directory (CertSage) in the parent directory of where certsage.php is located (hence the ../ before CertSage in the error). You should still be able to use CertSage for your system. You'll just need to change the location of CertSage's data directory to a location where CertSage has the appropriate permissions. If you open certsage.php in a text editor of some kind and look at line 18, you'll find:

  public $dataDirectory = "../CertSage";

You can modify the path inside the quotes to point to wherever you want for your system so long as PHP has appropriate permissions to access that location. Whatever you choose, make certain that location isn't accessible from the public internet or you'll compromise your private keys!
