So, I'm beyond perplexed! I just spun up a new RHEL 7.2 instance on AWS. I successfully installed Apache, MariaDB, & PHP. Then I successfully installed Laravel 5. Everything worked and is working great...except for one ridiculously small hitch that is driving me bonkers!
- So, my Apache is running as U:G (apache:apache)
- My new Laravel site has been chown'd all too apache:apache
- Directory permissions have been set to 777 for the storage directory recursively.
Yet my system continues to throw permission denied fatal errors when trying to write to the storage/logs directory or when trying to run the file_put_contents function to the storage/framework/views directory.
I have opened those directories up wide open with 777 and still it's doing this.
P.S. "This is server related...so, please don't shut down my question for that reason."
