PrestaShop cannot export sql query results to a CSV file in SQL Manager

We're using PrestaShop 1.5.4.1

We try to export the list of all the products into a csv file by using a custom sql query in SQL Manager.

Following query works well if you just VIEW it. But when it comes to export the results to a CSV file by clicking the first button next to the query, you get the whole sql query string itself inside a csv file. No results, just the query itself.

SELECT p.id_product, p.active, pl.name, GROUP_CONCAT(DISTINCT(cl.name) SEPARATOR ",") as categories, p.price, p.id_tax_rules_group, p.wholesale_price, p.reference, p.supplier_reference, p.id_supplier, p.id_manufacturer, p.upc, p.ecotax, p.weight, p.quantity, pl.description_short, pl.description, pl.meta_title, pl.meta_keywords, pl.meta_description, pl.link_rewrite, pl.available_now, pl.available_later, p.available_for_order, p.date_add, p.show_price, p.online_only, p.condition, p.id_shop_default 
FROM ps_product p 
LEFT JOIN ps_product_lang pl ON (p.id_product = pl.id_product) 
LEFT JOIN ps_category_product cp ON (p.id_product = cp.id_product) 
LEFT JOIN ps_category_lang cl ON (cp.id_category = cl.id_category) 
LEFT JOIN ps_category c ON (cp.id_category = c.id_category) 
LEFT JOIN ps_product_tag pt ON (p.id_product = pt.id_product) 
WHERE pl.id_lang = 1 
AND cl.id_lang = 1 
AND p.id_shop_default = 1 AND c.id_shop_default = 1 
GROUP BY p.id_product

Open in new window


I don't think that it is related with the sql query itself because I also tried exporting with a single line basic sql query but it didn't work. I also tried different browsers, nothing changed.

Thanks in advance.

Ok. I found the problem.

When I checked the http error log file of the web server, I saw the following lines;
"PHP Warning:  fopen(/.../export/request_sql_1.csv): failed to open stream: Permission denied in /.../controllers/admin/AdminRequestSqlController.php on line xxx, referer: http://www.mysite.com/..."

That means Prestashop cannot generate the csv file inside "export" folder.

Navigating to the admin folder and setting the owner of the export folder as www solves the issue.
# chown www:www export
