Apache got no access to rewrite files at htdocs

Postby Enxorix » 23. April 2009 23:20

okay.. installed phpbb forum..
and it's REALLY hard to run.. because the forum can't change theme.. because it can't rewrite files..

Code: Select all
Fatal error: ./../cache/ is NOT writable. in /opt/lampp/htdocs/includes/acm/acm_file.php on line 109


IS IT POSSIBLE TO MAKE SOME FOLDERS ACCESSIBLE WITHOUT ROOT ACCESS?
Then i can make htdocs folder accessible..

Is it possible?

It depends.

If the folder belongs to your userid, you can grant full access to everybody via "chmod 777 foldername". If it does not belong to your userid, you cannot change accessibility, because you must be root in order to change ownership via chown.
