Have you tried
Code:
$ chmod 777 backups/dump
$ chmod 777 glpi/config
$ chmod 777 docs
or change the glpi directory's permission according to requirement.
If you extract the directory in /var/www or /opt/lampp/htdocs, the default permission of the directory is drwxrwxr-x that is 775 that is too much open.
If I set 755, I can still access the login page without forbidden error as well as all inner pages.
Code:
chmod -R 755 glpi

The permission is for security purpose, if no one is accessing except you then you can give 777 for your project.

Can you connect your ocsng database through command line.
If you can connect it through command line, it will be connected through ocsng mode too.


Id the databse name is correct? The default name is 'ocsweb'. Does the database exist?
Have you filled correct username and password?
The default username & password is ocs & blank.

Make sure they all are correct.
