I'm following a tutorial to help me install the lighttpd server software on my Mandriva box. http://www.cyberciti.biz/tips/installing-and-configuring-lighttpd-webserver-howto.html
I think that I've done everything necessary but I keep getting this error whenever I want to start the server.
[root@localhost lighttpd]# /etc/init.d/lighttpd start Starting lighttpd: 2009-07-28 13:00:15: (log.c.84) opening errorlog '/var/log/lighttpd/error.log' failed: Permission denied 2009-07-28 13:00:15: (server.c.893) Opening errorlog failed. Going down.
I don't understand what's causing this problem. I'm running this server as root, there should be no permission problem.
