Hello
When I try to enter the add-on I get the following error:
"500 A writable page root directory is requested. Please create it by clicking 'Save' in the <a href='index.php?option=com_myjspace&view=url'>'Directory' view<a/>."
What should I do?
Tank!

Click on the link then click 'save' ! This will create a 'myjsp' directory (default name).
The Joomla root directory needs to be writable.
Before clicking the 'save' button (green button) you can change the page root directory name if you want. You can use a directory created from another way (direct access to the server, ftp ...).

Hello
Thanks for your answer.
In the page that appears to me there is no "Save" button. Attachment screenshot: 1drv.ms/u/s!AjBxFi1dfsI1itpmO9i_F0ZfeQJIVA

Hello,

To provide more information:
- What is the action just before the message?
- Can you activate temporarily the 'System debug mode' to show a more detailed error (Menu System / Global configuration / Tab System / Debug System = Yes)?

To solve (workaround):
- Try to create manually a directory named 'myjsp' (readable & writable) at the Joomla root directory (where you installed Joomla. At the same level as 'administrator', 'bin', 'cache', ... 'tmp'.).

You’re welcome.
Can you detail the action just before the error message ?
