I am trying to upgrade my development server from 3.10.11 (which works fine) to 4.x in preparation for Joomla 3.x going out of support in August 23.
When I do run the live update, I get an alert box in my browser saying that the server was unable to write the file:
This is the first file in alphabetical order that doesn't exist on the server. So I assume that in some way the apache user (the user that my web server runs as) isn't able to create either a new file or a new directory in that folder.
owner:group of the folder
/var/www/html is apache:apache and I have tried setting permissions to
775, but I still get the same message.
Normally as I am running fedora I would expect selinux to be the culprit of this kind of error but running
setenforce 0 doesn't help.
I am fairly sure this isn't a Joomla issue so much as that I have misconfigured my server somehow. That said I can't work out at all what the issue is.
