Drupal Commons site has no style after installation

See the Drupal Commons site running on boysday.org

well how to start. i am new to drupal and I have serious flaws during the installation; Tried it dozens of times.I get warnings about too many files open. Somebody gave me the advice to do the adjustments in the administrative section (admin/settings/performance).

On "Bandwidth optimizations," the option "Optimize CSS files" and "Optimize JavaSript files" were enabled. I have tried to switch off; for testing and customize my Drupal Commons install it's better to disable as to have CSS and JavaScript development support with tools like "Firebug" using Firefox.

I tried to do so, and got back a very interesting message.


The file could not be created.
The file could not be created.

Can this be caused by the fact the folders in /home/vhost/WWW/mysite/sites/default/files were all owned by the wwwrun user? What can I do?

There are no pictures, and no CSS. Is there any right or permission problem?

    @MPD A question is a duplicated if it is asking the same thing asked in another question; the fact the question is asked by another user doesn't matter. – kiamlaluno Jan 14 '12 at 17:11
  • hello FR6 hello MPD - hello kiamlauno. Thx for he answer and the comments. well i have serious troubles on all the server. I guess that i have to upgrad the server to apache 2.2 - the old server-horse apache 1.3. is ment to be depriciated! well what do you suggest!? – zero Jan 14 '12 at 17:32
  • @zero, is this the same problem/question as FVR linked to above? The original version of the question was for the same website. – mpdonadio Jan 14 '12 at 18:39
  • @kiamlaluno Yes, potential duplicate, but I would not say they were exact dups. The OP should at least have the chance to address whether it was a duplicate and delete it themselves. – mpdonadio Jan 14 '12 at 18:42

As you already suggested, this is most likely a file permission problem. Make sure the entire directory under sites\default\files is writable by the apache user, often this is called www-data.

To get you going maybe download XAMPP for your platform and get your first Drupal installation working locally.
