I am facing a problem while installing drupal on my Linux (Fedora 15) machine.
I have downloaded the drupal package from drupal.org website and copied the package to my web directory
There I have extracted the package and renamed the extracted folder to drupal.
Now I have created the database dbdrupal in mysql database.
I have copied the
Now when I go to my web browser and open the link
installation started but at 3rd stage ( Verify Requirements ) - it shows error
sites/default/filesdoes 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.
The settings file is not writable.
The Drupal installer requires write permissions to
./sites/default/settings.phpduring the installation process. If you are unsure how to grant file permissions, consult the online handbook.
I have created a folder
/sites/default/filesand gave it full permission 777 also gave full permission 777 to
sites/default/settings.php, but I am still getting the same error.
