I’m usually a desktop user, but right now I’m trying to get a web server up and running on my system before moving it onto a hosting site.
I got apache working alright and unzipped Drupal into /srv/www/htdocs/tbms. Included in that location is an “install.php” page that is supposed to go through the rest of the process.
Unfortunately when I navigate to http://localhost/tbms/index.php it forwards to http://localhost/tbms/install.php?profile=default and I get the message
The Drupal installer requires write permissions to ./sites/default/settings.php during the installation process.
What permissions do I need to set it for? Currently it has the owner and group 1080:1080 and changing it to root:root doesn’t work.
I am not sure what to make the permissions to make it work. I assume that this is one of those pages that will not get uploaded to the hosting server for public viewing.
