think the problem is that /home/www/web6/web belongs to the admin user you created for that web and the web group, but not to the Apache user and group. That's why Apache can't write to this directory.

You can either make this directory world-writable (chmod 777), or you make a
Code:
chown <Apache_user>:<Apache_group> /home/www/web6/web

Here is the output you wanted till
Code:
ls -la /home/www/web6/phptmp/
total 0
drwxrwxrwx  2 bruce web6  80 2006-01-13 23:59 .
drwxr-xr-x  9 bruce web6 368 2006-01-17 18:10 ..
-r--------  1 root  root   0 2005-12-20 13:17 .no_delete

out of your comment till I can see that it is not that harmless to give these directories writable attribute.

I think I'll hit the nail on the head soon in respect to my problem. I think it has to do with permissions the folder joomla got when I unpacked it. Just a small question besides my issue:
I had a user bogdan on the server before installation of ISPConfig (this is me and the user who did unpacked joomla). I deleted user bogdan from the server and wanted to create the user with the same username with ISPConfig in web6 but the system just keeps saying that the user name is assigned already. Weird isn't it? Does ISPConfig remembers system users (even these who have been deleted)?

I found "bogdan" in /home/admispconfig/ispconfig/users. Can I delete it from their? What sort of users is hold in this file? After ISPConfig installation I made a couple of new system users but they are not in this file.

Yes, ISPConfig has to remember all users that where present at installation time to make sure that you cant create a duplicate user in ISPConfig. Simply remove the user in the file /home/admispconfig/ispconfig/users.

Enter the users you created manually to the file /home/admispconfig/ispconfig/users to prevet problems in ISPConfig.

I got rid of nearly all error messages but the folders inside of the joomla installation are still not writabe for the application itself
Code:
administrator/backups/  Unwriteable
  administrator/components/  Unwriteable
  administrator/modules/  Unwriteable
  administrator/templates/  Unwriteable
  cache/  Unwriteable
  components/  Unwriteable
  images/  Unwriteable
  images/banners/  Unwriteable
  images/stories/  Unwriteable
  language/  Unwriteable
  mambots/  Unwriteable
  mambots/content/  Unwriteable
  mambots/editors/  Unwriteable
  mambots/editors-xtd/  Unwriteable
  mambots/search/  Unwriteable
  media/  Unwriteable
  modules/  Unwriteable
  templates/  Unwriteable
What can I do... make them all writeable to everybody... Isn't is dangerous
What about the safe mode in php settings. Is it really so bed for joomla to leave it on. Have a webcalendar running which needs it to be on... dilemma

You can either make thedirectories world-writable (chmod 777), or you make a

Code:
chown <Apache_user>:<Apache_group> /path/to/directory
If you trust your other users on the server (e.g. because they have no idea what Linux is...), then this is ok. You can switch on PHP Safe Mode for all the other sites on the server.

If it's your own site, then you can turn Safe Mode off. Also, if you trust the owner of the Joomla site.

Thank you falko,
just one question. You said that I can switch php safe mode for all the other sites. How do you mean it? I thougt it is a global setting - once it is switched on it is switched on for all the sites on the server. Mybe it is too obvious for you but I am not very experienced in this things

In ISPConfig, you can enable disable php safemode for each website. have a look at the website settings on the basis tab.

Thanks a lot. But I still have the very last question
In this thread you were allways talking that i need to make a new web for the joomla. I have made allready a web for my department and there is allready webcalendar and some oter reviewing software there. Some of it needs php safe mode, some not. Shall I open for every new CMS or what so ever a new web? I made my department as a customer and it seems that a customer can have only one web with the same hostname (I do understand it right do I? hostname is in this case the name of the server?)
Sorry again if it is one of these nerving newbie questions...
