I am trying to install drupal 7.18 in my Fedora 14 machine . I put the drupal filess in
/var/www/html/drupal directory and set
chmod 7777 -R drupal permission. But when I tried to install drupal it shows errors like :
File system The directory sites/default/files does not exist. An automated attempt to create this directory failed, possibly due to a permissions problem. To proceed with the installation, either create the directory and modify its permissions manually or ensure that the installer has the permissions to create it automatically. For more information, see INSTALL.txt or the online handbook.
Settings file The settings file does not exist. The Drupal installer requires that you create a settings file as part of the installation process. Copy the ./sites/default/default.settings.php file to ./sites/default/settings.php. More details about installing Drupal are available in INSTALL.txt.
What is the issue there?? I am newbie to Linux.
