php on apache server running in fedora 13

Hello, for the past few weeks I have been learning php. Right now I have been playing with the fopen() statement for saveing data from php and html.
However when I try to run my code I get this error in firefox:

saveing your file... Warning: fopen(hi.txt): failed to open stream: Permission denied in /var/www/html/fileio.php on line 5

I know my php code is good because I have a php debugger on my work station and it runs with that but my server for some reason has issues with file io
Can any one point me to where I would find the config file to fix this and how I would edit that config file?

Firefox is probably running under a normal system account and does not have permission to save where you want it to. Either run firefox as a root user or grant yourself permission to save in /var/www/html/

If I'm just messing around in Apache, I explicitly grant myself full privileges so I don't run into these nuisances. ie

 chmod -R 777 /var/www/
Obviously you need to be careful with this if security is a concern...

didn't work

I think that the issue is not with permissions for the file but with the php config file do you have any idea where that would be?


apache, fedora, html, php, servers
