The install script will attempt to create a public file storage directory
in the default location at sites/default/files (the location of the files
directory may be changed after Drupal is installed).
If auto-creation fails, you can make it work by changing permissions on
the sites/default directory so that the web server can create the files
directory within it for you. (If you are creating a multisite
installation, substitute the correct sites directory for sites/default;
see the Multisite Configuration section of this file, below.)
If auto-creation fails, you can create the directory yourself. (If you are
creating a multisite installation, substitute the correct sites directory
for sites/default; see the Multisite Configuration section of this file,
below.) Sample commands from a Unix/Linux command line:
For example, on a Unix/Linux command line, you can grant everyone
mkdir sites/default/files
chmod a+w sites/default/files
Alternatively, you can make the install script work by changing
permissions on the sites/default directory. The web server can then
create the files directory within it for you.
For example, on a Unix/Linux command line, you can you can grant everyone
(including the web server) permission to write to the sites/default
directory with this command:
chmod a+w sites/default
Be sure to set the permissions back after the installation is finished!
Sample command:
Then re-run install.php (e.g. by clicking "try again" at the bottom of
the Requirements problem page. Once the files directory is created, you
will need to grant everyone (including the web server) permission to
write to it with this command:
chmod go-w sites/default
chmod a+w sites/default/files
Alternatively, instead of allowing the web server to create the files
directory for you as described above, you can create it yourself. Sample
commands from a Unix/Linux command line:
Be sure to set the permissions for the default directory back after the
installation is finished! (Leave the files directory writeable.)
Sample command:
mkdir sites/default/files
chmod a+w sites/default/files
chmod go-w sites/default
b. Missing settings file.
