Error opening ../config/default_pref
Could not create initial preference file!
/var/lib/squirrelmail/data/ should be writable by user nobody
Please contact your system administrator and report this error.
How do I best setup lampp so it can read things from Ubuntu? (on Lucid if it makes any difference)
I tried adding user `nobody` to www-data
I am not contemplating other ways of doing it... such as chown -R nobody /targetDirectories
but this is not ideal. There doesn't seem to be an option in /etc/squirrelmail/conf.pl
What do you suggest?
