Installation issues

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I got a file permissions message error:

File permission errors have been detected, and must be fixed before you can continue.
To fix the errors on a Linux system, try typing in the following command(s):
chmod -R a+w /home/domainname/public_html/adserver/var
chmod -R a+w /home/domainname/public_html/adserver/var/cache
chmod -R a+w /home/domainname/public_html/adserver/var/plugins
chmod -R a+w /home/domainname/public_html/adserver/var/templates_compiled
chmod -R a+w /home/domainname/public_html/adserver/plugins
chmod -R a+w /home/domainname/public_html/adserver/www/admin/plugins
chmod -R a+w /home/domainname/public_html/adserver/www/images

I've made the chmod in ssh and clicked on "retry". After that, I'm back to the first page and when I click on "I agree", I see this message for a second "checking system parameters" and nothing happens...

Any help welcome!

Thanks.

Hi @whynote,

Well, doesn't look to me like you have done what you think you have done. As you post above, here's what your Revive Adserver's /var directory permissions are:

drwxr-xr-x  5 www-data www-data  4096 Sep 19 13:03 var

So, the "www-data" user account has write permissions on the directory, but the group and the all user group do not.

So, unless your web server is running as the "www-data" user account, then the web server doesn't have permissions to write files in that directory - which is exactly what the error is telling you.

Hi @andrewatfornax,

Thank you for your message.

You are right! But I've tried a few things because it did not work when I used the web user (jejouedu).

With that, I even don't reach the second step of the install. When I click on "I agree", I see "checking system parameters" and nothing happens...

Any idea?

Thanks.
