I've run into a problem with Joomla. . . it cant create new folders through the Admin UI. It's a standard permissions error. I've been told to chmod all of the folders in the site to 777.
Is there a better way to go about this? Somebody said something about creating a group and adding myself and apache into it. Then give group access to those folders. . . or something like that.
Can anybody give me any specific steps. . . I'm not that familiar doing this from the terminal ?? Or should I just chmod everything to 777 ?
