You can either change ../../tpl_c to group for example: _www/apache accordingly

Post by billkeleris »

Hello,

I am trying to deploy Booked scheduler on an Ubuntu with Apache and php7.4.

I created the config.php file but when I visit the website from the browser I receive the following error:

----------------
The web server (such as _www on Mac or apache on Linux) must have write access to ../../tpl_c.
The permissions are currently set as 0
You can either change ../../tpl_c to group for example: _www/apache accordingly
Or change ../../tpl_c to have permission 777 which is only for testing due to security vulnerability.
----------------

I changed the permissions as stated above making the www-data the owner of the tpl folder (actually the owner of all the files in /var/www/html) however it still doesn't work.

The error says about " tpl_c " however there is nowhere such a name in the files

Do I miss something?
Thank you

In your post you said you changed the permission of the tpl folder.

However, the error message needs access to the tpl_c folder. Those are two different folders.

The tpl_c folder should be empty when you first install the program, and then when you start running the program, various files will end up in the folder.
