docman.config.php: Unwritable

I can't upload files.

All folders are set to 755. All documents are set to 644 (including docman.config.php), but I'm getting "unwritable" errors.

When I try to upload a file, I get this error:

Error Uploading. - Directory problem:

Hi Jennifer, seems something has gone wrong with your file permissions.

If changing to 644 doesn't work this could mean that your server permissions are setup in such a way that the php user is not part of the owner group for the file. This is uncommon but can happen.

Try changing the permissions of the docman.config.php to 664, or if that doesn't work change them to 777.

For the file upload issue, try the same thing. Change your dmdocuments folder to 775 and see if that works, or if that doesn't work change them to 777.

If you need to use 777 permissions, please contact your hosting company as something is definitely wrong with your setup then.
