Invalid file permissions on install.

Post by justmike65 » Wed May 31, 2017 3:14 pm

I am almost through installing on Ubuntu but I get this error:
Not writable (/var/log/timetrex)File permissions are invalid, some TimeTrex files are not readable/writable. See detailed error messages below.Detailed Error Messages

Not writable: /var/www/html/timetrex/classes/modules/install/../../../api/soap/api.php
Any thoughts? I have tried setting permissions but that does not seem to help. :shock:

Is there a default timetrex user name for the system?

Thanks for any and all help!

If you just set the owner of the files to your web server user, that is usually enough:

Code: Select all

chown -R www-data.www-data /var/log/timetrex
chown -R www-data.www-data /var/www/html/timetrex/
