Hi,

yes. :)

You have to make a

Code: Select all

chown -R <apache-user>:<apache-group> <phpmyfaq-directory>/
Then it should work.

Ok,

Here's what I did
I did a cmod 777 on the directory.. and that worked.
my next problem was that mysql could not find the database 'faq'
So I went to myphpadmin page and created a database called faq
After that the install went on..

So it's running now. I like it... ! it was wel worth the effort.

Thanks for the help !

Hi,

chmod 777 is not really a good decision. I hope, this is a intranet server!
