I’m trying to install piwik in a local OS X development environment but am running into permissions problems.
here is what the install error message reads:
Piwik couldn’t write to some directories.
Try to Execute the following commands on your server, to allow Write access on these directories:
chown -R www-data:www-data /Users/me/Sites/project/piwik chmod -R 0755 /Users/me/Sites/project/piwik/tmp chmod -R 0755 /Users/me/Sites/project/piwik/tmp/templates_c chmod -R 0755 /Users/me/Sites/project/piwik/tmp/cache chmod -R 0755 /Users/me/Sites/project/piwik/tmp/assets chmod -R 0755 /Users/me/Sites/project/piwik/tmp/tcpdf
The first line above doesn’t work - Terminal tells me:
chown: www-data: illegal group name
The second command worked, but the rest didn’t as the directories weren’t yet created. I created them then re-ran the commands and those all worked.
Any help for how to deal with the error I get from running the first command above?
