Please, urgently need help with Apache and RT3 - Permission denie d problem


I cant seem to find the solution to my apache problem, I keep getting a
permission denied problem in the apache error log file and my page produces
a Cannot find Server - Internal Server Error.

The error log file displays:
[Fri Aug 29 13:44:19 2003] [error] mkdir /etc/apache-perl/mason: Permission
denied at /usr/local/share/perl/5.6.1/HTML/Mason/ line 171

Now this did work until I installed Coldfusion 6.1. My apache is running
under user www-data which hasn’t changed Ive tried chowns on the rt3 files
and this did nothing.
Im totally lost and cant find the solution.
Im starting to not know what to do next, please help!
