Default how and where to install FUDforum under Apache2

I'm trying to install http://www.fudforum.org/, and get:


FUDforum Installation Wizard

Please grant read/write permissions on this installation file () to the
web-server user to proceed.

http://localhost/fudforum/install.php


The install files are as so:

thufir@dur:~$
thufir@dur:~$ ll /var/www/fudforum/
total 2804
drwxr-xr-x 2 thufir thufir 4096 2012-05-05 03:52 ./

Now, this is under apache2. Is the problem that I have this in the wrong
directory? Should it be in home somehow? I'd rather not delve into
Apache too much, and just use the Apache from apt-get.

Just some pointers on how get started, please.




thanks,

Thufir

It sounds like you need to change ownership of the install.php file,
just like the error message said: "Please grant read/write permissions
on this installation file () to the web-server user to proceed."


Right now it is owned by user thufir and group thufir, and not writable
by others. So do a "chown webserver install.php" or something like that,
and then access the install.php via the web to see if it works.
http://your.webserver.org/fudforum/install.php


Best regards,
Patrick Asselman

your.webserver.org/ gives "The domain webserver.org may be for sale by
its owner!"

However, you were absolutely correct, I ran chown www-data on the script
and a few associated directories.


thanks,
