This question already has an answer here:
Just moved my websites to my first vps (centos 7). So i'm very new to linux. Now I have a problem: php cant write anything. Can't make dirs, files, edit them. Php runs as "apache" Things I tried:
- Chmod all dirs and files to 777
- Chown all dirs and files to "apache"
- Chown all dirs and files to "nobody"
Its simply wants to edit with file_put_contents(req.log, $content).
How can I fix it?
Edit: Ls -l:

Edit: Tried the answer of Kostas I chmoded and chowned public_html/data. Then opened test.php in public_html in webbrowser with the following code:
<?php mkdir("data/testdir") ?>
Nothing happened and this error occurred:
