I'm seeing a few of these messages in the Apache error log (
/var/log/httpd/error_log) at the rate of about one per half hour, often in small batches:
(process:23210): libgnomevfs-WARNING **: Unable to create ~/.gnome2 directory: Permission denied
It's not a problem but it's ugly and clouds the error log from useful errors.
- I don't know the url that triggers these warnings. If I did, I'd be most of the way to solving why they occur. I guess they are triggered by a crawler guessing at a particular URL which triggers the error.
- Our Apache uses the "
nobody" user. The "nobody" user is an unprivileged user. This means that the user doesn't own anything, doesn't have a home folder and doesn't have execute permissions to anything.
Does anyone know what causes this error?
