Problem with Checking for permission to write "templates_c "

Postby hamdigdoura » Tue Apr 22, 2014 8:27 pm

web server: apache 2.4.9
OS:Fedora 20

When i install TestLink 1.9.9 but it always prompts like that ,although i gave all privileges "chmod 777 templates_c . :roll: nothing change

Read/write permissions

For security reasons we suggest that directories tagged with [S] on following messages, will be made UNREACHEABLE from browser.
Give a look to README file, section 'Installation & SECURITY' to understand how to change the defaults.
Checking if /var/www/html/testlink/gui/templates_c directory exists OK
Checking if /var/www/html/testlink/gui/templates_c directory is writable (by user used to run webserver process) Failed!
Checking if /var/testlink/logs/ directory exists [S] OK
Checking if /var/testlink/logs/ directory is writable (by user used to run webserver process) OK
Checking if /var/testlink/upload_area/ directory exists [S] OK
Checking if /var/testlink/upload_area/ directory is writable (by user used to run webserver process) OK

Terminal shows me:
[root@localhost gui]# ll
total 24
drwxr-xrwx. 5 xxxx xxxxx 4096 Nov 17 09:49 drag_and_drop
drwxr-xrwx. 2 xxxx xxxxx 4096 Nov 17 09:49 javascript
drwxr-xrwx. 2 xxxx xxxxx 4096 Nov 17 09:49 niftycube
drwxrwxrwx. 16 xxxx xxxxx 4096 Nov 17 09:49 templates
drwxrwxrwx. 2 xxxx xxxxx 4096 Nov 17 09:49 templates_c
drwxr-xrwx. 3 xxxx xxxxx 4096 Nov 17 09:49 themes
How could i fix this problem?

Thanks a lot :)

never happened
is strange that 777 did not do the trick.
you need to know what user is used for the daemon that runs the webserver. (as detailed on installer screen you have posted)
this user needs write permission to template_c
on my env
drwxrwxr-x fman daemon for template_c
