Hi.
Seeing that I am still a N00B, I do not know how users and groups work in linux, yet.

Also: Where do i find there directives? I don't think there is such a user as wwwrun.

Thank you for your patience.

Running
Code:
ps -ef|grep httpd
should tell you the user under that runs apache. Then from /etc/group you'll find the group the user belongs to.

You have to search all those included *.conf files for something lijke the following 2 lines:
Code:
User wwwrun
Group users
When you find the user/group that runs apache make sure that everything under /srv/www is owned by that user/group.

Regards

It seems to have solved the initial problem!

Now I get this error:
Quote:
The server encountered an internal error and was unable to complete your request. Either the server is overloaded or there was an error in a CGI script.
The error log states:
Quote:
[error] [client 10.0.0.10] Syntax error in type map, no ':' in /srv/www/htdocs/index.php for header <?php\r\n
It ends right there ...

I do not even know what a cgi script is, and I never needed it when i used Apache and PHP on windows (I used the WAMP package).

There is a folder named cgi-bin in /srv/www with one file in it, named php5.

If you have edited index.php in windows there are maybe some special characters in the file.
You can run
Code:
dos2unix index.php index.php
to transform it in unix format.
