A permissions error, it seems.

Under what user and group is the webserver that is hosting this "SquirrelMail" running?
What are the permissions of the 'data' folder?
The webserver user needs write access for that folder.

krayz1e 05-30-2005 11:09 PM

the folder is 777

In which case I have no idea.
Does that file already exist? If it does, delete it. That's all I can think of...

krayz1e 05-30-2005 11:46 PM

the .pref file is 644 so i dunno if it is supposed 2 b 777

piratePenguin 05-30-2005 11:55 PM

As long as the webserver user can write to it.
What user is the websever running under?
Who's the owner of the .pref file?

I'd say deleting the .pref file might work though.
