Mkdir /other/rt3/var/mason_data/obj: Permission denied

Hi,

I know this isn’t the first time this thread has been created but as I’ve
not found a solution in the mail archives I can’t think of anything but to
open it anew.

I’ve been trying to get RT running on an up2date Red Hat 8.0 installation
with little luck.
I’m running httpd-2.0.40-11.5 with mod_perl-1.99_05-3, both RPM
installations (all-in-all its a fairly vanilla system).

As previous users have also attempted I tried creating the directory in
question and gave it 777 permissions all to no avail. It seems like apache
is denying the module rights to perform modifications to the filesystem
rather than their being any permission problem with the fs itself.

I can’t think of anything else to try so any input would be greatly
appreciated!

Thanks,
Frans

The only time this happened to me, I used the wrong --with-web-user. var
was owned by someone other than the user the web server runs as. After
fixing that, problem went away.

Hi

Just installed perl-5.8.0 + apache + mod_+perl and got the same error …

It was a simple matter of “who’s running the httpd”:

  • before the update, it was user=apache, group=apache.
  • After the update it was user=nobody, group=nobody.

Quick and dirty:
Check who owns /other/rt3/var/mason_data/obj . If it is apache.apache, change your httpd.conf accordingly (i.e, run httpd as apache.apache).

Hope it helps.
