hey guys
im a linux newbie
,i want to know how to make the apache webserver write to templates_c

i tried
chown -R apache:apache templates_c

but it still says

Your templates_c directory is not writable by the web server

pls help

asher

Try:

sudo chown -R apache:apache templates_c

If you have the root password.

My guess is that your permissions are screwed up. Try something like:

chmod 775 template_c

This will ensure that both the user 'apache' and the group 'apache' will have read/write/execute permissions in the directory, while everyone else will have read/execute permissions.

You're horrible John A. You always own me in this board.

Rawwwwr!

>You always own me in this board.
Try Usenet. Even if you're correct you still get owned. :P

Hahaha. But still. You know too much compared to me!

if you want a more graphical way of chowning/chmoding stuff, you can use MC (midnight commander). It looks like the old dos shell did.
