Tiki Installer Cannot Proceed : Directories not writeable

posts: 5

I am currently trying to install tiki on a webserver that I will be using for an intranet installation. I have root access to the box. This is what I have done so far:
1.) Installed mysql server
2.) Installed and configured phpMyAmin
3.) Downloaded the Tiki files
4.) Untarred them into my /var/www/html/tiki folder
5.) run the setup.sh script accepting the defaults of Apache, Apache, and [] under multi.
When I do an ls -l on the files in the Tiki directory, this is an excerpt of the output:
-rw-r--r--. 1 apache apache 5227 Mar 2 2011 messu-mailbox.php
-rw-r--r--. 1 apache apache 2373 Mar 2 2011 messu-read_archive.php

Any ideas? Also, I am running this on Fedora 14.

Thanks,

UPDATE:
I ran the following commands.
find YOURDIR -type d -exec chmod 777 {} \;

find YOURDIR -type f -exec chmod 644 {} \;

restarted httpd and no changes

RESOLVED:
If you have been having this issue, I hope this helps. SELinux was set to enforce. I have changed the /etc/selinux/configure file to where selinux is in permissive mode. I hope this helps.

Usually it is some working folder that tiki cant write into. That's that the setup.sh script is for.

cd /tiki chmod u+x setup.sh ./setup.sh


This creates several folders and fixes permissions of all the tiki files.
