    Having problems installing moodle on linux server?

    Hi All,
    I am currently installing moodle onto a linux box, ubuntu server.
    All goes well until I browse to the install.php page and when I get onto the third page I get this...

    I'm guessing I need to change the properties on the moodledata folder with chown or is it chmod?
    Can anyone suggest how I could do this or point me to an article on installing moodle like this?

    Thanks

    assuming this is ubuntu:

    Code:
     mkdir -p /var/www/moodledata
    chmod -R 775 /var/www/moodledata
    chown -R www-data:www-data /var/www/moodledata

    Moodle comes as a debian package so if you do an

    apt-get install moodle

    it will set up all the bits and bobs and the permissions for you. (i hope im right in saying moodle is in the main package rep.)

    Correct, it has been dfsg-ied (Overview of moodle source package). In Ubuntu, it will probably be in universe.
