Application Configuration Errors

Problem

After attempting or completing an update, you see the following error in the Activity Log at Configuration () > System Logs.:

Updater unable to add default database tls options to configuration file: Application configuration file is not writable

Cause

The file permissions for the configuration.php file prevented the update process from adding new placeholder entries to the file.

The new entries are optional. You can use them to provide the configuration for encrypted database connections.

Solution

You do not need to do anything to address this issue. There is no detrimental impact if the placeholder entries are not present in the file.

You can choose to add the placeholder entries to the configuration.php file manually:

$db_tls_ca='';
$db_tls_ca_path='';
$db_tls_cert='';
$db_tls_cipher='';
$db_tls_key='';
$db_tls_verify_cert='';
