I am attempting to install Drupal on Linux Redhat using Apache, but it will not allow me to pass step 3 due to the fact that sites/default/files is not writable.
I have followed the instructions on Drupal.org, in their install.txt file as well as the instructions from others who have had the same error with no success.
I have granted permissions access all different ways, i.e.: root:root 777, root:apache 777.
I have also verified that Apache is the user running the Apache process, but I am still stuck.
- I have granted the user 'apache' 777 rights to the files folder with no luck.
- I verified the user 'apache' is in fact the user running apache.
- I was able to complete the installation of Drupal on Windows.
Any new ideas?
