Runway installation set up warning at User account step

Hello, Having a problem with new local installation of Runway 3.1.2 at the User account step in the setup process:

Warning: file_put_contents(/Users/bizni/Sites/marymcdonnell/app/perch/setup/../config/runway.php): failed to open stream: Permission denied in /Users/bizni/Sites/marymcdonnell/app/perch/setup/PerchSetup_Installation.class.php on line 164
Warning: Cannot modify header information - headers already sent by (output started at /Users/bizni/Sites/marymcdonnell/app/perch/setup/PerchSetup_Installation.class.php:164) in /Users/bizni/Sites/marymcdonnell/app/perch/core/lib/PerchUtil.class.php on line 233

Realise this is a permissions issue so you might not be able to help, but it’s the first time I’ve had this problem and have checked that the respective folders/files are writable. Perch installs fine, just with Runway that I’m having the problem. Still very new to Runway.

Debug Message - Perch Runway 3.1.2

Does perch/config/runway.php exist?

Hi Drew, Yes, that file exists

What permissions are set on it?

Hi Drew, thank you, does seem that was the problem: config directory and config/config.php were writable but not runway.php. Now working OK.

I didn’t remember changing permissions for runway.php for the first local installation I did, which was v3.0.11 a while back; and on the live installation from then (still on v3.0.11) runway.php is not writable — a bit confused by this

Does perch have a permission check in the install process? can't remember.
