I keep getting errors when trying to upload to my
tmp directory, it always fails if I try by URL or upload. The only way it works is via a direct upload Joomla extension.
As I have root access I have made sure permissions and ownership are correct and that the file path to my
tmp folder is correct in global of admin as well as
configuration.php so I am trying to figure out why it keeps failing.
chown apache:root on all my Joomla folders with permissions 755 and the path is
mysite.com/joomla as it is in a sub-directory but all else works except for this. Also I noticed each time I do an install it fails to create the
configuration.php file. Have I got ownership and permissions correct?
The error was a number of things coming up but the main thing persisting that I remember and that is still there is
tmp file folder not writable. I ended up clearing the cache via command and since then everything works but this one error message on
tmp folder remains in warnings.
Further to this I reinstalled latest 3.6 with exact same ownership and permissions but used wget command for tar file and now it is all working no errors.
