I had no problem installing the latest Joomla. I got the same "is not
writable" error for configuration.php, but I went ahead and completed
the install since Joomla indicates I can do the install anyway and then
copy the config parameters at the end. This worked fine.
I encountered a couple of problems after the install. First when I
tried to create an account it refused to let me use an email address
that I had assigned to the admin account. In fact if I created 2
accounts I could not use the same email address for both accounts. The
other issue I encountered is after I created the account it said an
activation link was sent to the email address I registered with. I have
yet to see these activation links. Sendmail is running and I don't see
Anybody have any ideas why I'm not seeing the mail messages sent by
httpd? I did have to update my SELinux policy to allow httpd to send email.
