Question Linux LVM - Do or do not, there is no try...


OK this is gonna sound kinda odd and probably a bit "noob" but, anyone have any issues with the Linux LVM format in FC3 insofar as:

I have a shared directory off root called (for arguments sake) "howfoxyisthatchickfromevanescence" and I need to access it from a PHP script.

Apache is both owner and group of the folder which is 777.

Apache/php says (paraphrasing) "bog off - either the directory does not exist or, you don't have permissions".

After exhausting all the lines of investigation i.e permissions and directorynames I am kinda stuck....."this is not the folder you are looking for"...

I have NEVER had this issue before on FC2 or a recent install of FC3 and this Linux LVM thing is my last hope...help me Obi Wan...

Firstly, Evanescence are truly awful. Even worse for churning out bland commercial dross than Incubus even...

Secondly... is this an LVM or Apache/PHP issue?? they two will have nothing in common. if LVM is working, then your filesystem will be working, and it's Apache having problems. You'v' given no real useful information about what you're actually doing... giving a directory name is no use, and neither is "paraphrasing" error messages. Do you think that you'll get more help by deliberately not providing accurate info?

So... what actually IS going wrong? provide REAL error messages at both apacahe and file system level and maybe we can help you.

Nope, what was I thinking - long day, short temper etc. etc. etc.

Secondly, I apologize for the nature of my post but I know now that it was an SELinux issue and not an LVM thing as you rightly alluded to.

Thanks for the reply tho, and in future I will remember my posting etiquette.

So in summary, I gave you nothing to work with, I was bad, I am sorry

Cheers

Mmm

Chris

It was an SELinux issue - basically during install I (D'oh) had left it on (more properly, did not switch it off) so unless I created the profile it was never gonna work - mea culpa, mea maxima culpa.

Done and dusted now - switched it off - you learn a new thing every day.

Cheers chap.
