I have set up (actually migrated) wordpress on ubuntu 10.04 with apache2 and everything works great. However, I'm getting the following error when using a plugin to upload files to the server:
[Wed Jun 06 13:12:29 2012] [error] [client xx.xxx.xxx.xxx] PHP Warning: fopen(/home/user/public/website.com/public/wp-content/plugins/cforms/abspath.php): failed to open stream: Permission denied in /home/user/public/website.com/public/wp-content/plugins/cforms/lib_functions.php on line 164, referer: http://website.com/wp-admin/plugins.php?deactivate=true&plugin_status=all&paged=1&s=
I've taken a bit too much on I think. I'm not a developer at all, but I thought it would be fun to try and set myself up with a Linode VPS.
I suspect that there is some sort of permissions problem. www-data is my php user. Could it be that www-data is lacking permissions? And how do I go about troubleshooting this?
Any help is greatly appreciated.
