Iīm trying to install wikiCalc
This programm is written in perl and doesnīt need any DB. I installed the archive in cgi-bin as it said in the howto, and called the setup file via my browser. The whole configuration is supposed to be done on line. when I run the setup file, I get messages like
Unable to create file ./wkcdata/hostinfo.txt
Unable to create Directory ./wkcdata/sites
I checked the permissions and everything seems all right:
in httpd.conf user and group are apache;
in cgi-bin (inclusive cgi-bin) all files and directories have apache as owner and group;
everything is set up with chmod 755;
and even when I do chmod -R 777 I still get the same error messages.
in htppd.conf I have the default configuration:
ScriptAlias /cgi-bin/ "/var/www/cgi-bin/"
# "/var/www/cgi-bin" should be changed to whatever your ScriptAliased
# CGI directory exists, if you have that configured.
Allow from all
I donīt understand what is wrong. This wikiCalc doesnī t need anything: you just have to extract the files and run the set-up through you browser.
I tried it on another server that seems to have the exact same configuration, and it worked! I compared permissions, httpd.conf, everything seems to be the same! I canī t find the difference, but it must have one!
P.S. and of course I have perl installed
This is perl, v5.8.8 built for i386-linux-thread-multi
