    How do we fix the permission issue?

    The server I have set up is based on Perfect Server Ubuntu Guide..

    What's the output of
    Code:

    The output is:

    Code:
    drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 4096 2009-07-28 23:51 .
    drwxr-xr-x 6 root root 4096 2009-07-28 23:51 . .
    
    What does that mean?


    Thanks..

    This means that only the root user has write permissions for that directory. Either change the ownership of the directory or its permissions.

    Thanks, Falko. I was reluctant to change the permissions as some say it is unsecure to do so..

    I will look into this soon..Thanks very much.
