I've had eGroupware installed on my site before, but removed it several
months ago. Now, I'm trying to install it again, with a completely new
installation - new directory/folder name, new database, etc. The basic
installation works fine, but when I get to the settings page, I keep getting
a message that the backup folder doesn't exist.
If I change the location of the backup folder (which is by default
/var/lib/group/default/backup) to any other location (outside the document
root), it still says the same thing. If I make it inside the document root,
it tells me I don't have permissions for that.
Even creating a new folder outside the document root, using SSH and setting
permissions, ownership, etc.... nothing works.
A search discovered this is a common issue and I can't seem to make it work
After multiple attempts to fix it, eGroupware won't even accept my user ID
and password, so I gave up, trying to do a new installation on a different
domain I own on the same server. Same issues happened there, too.
How do I make this work? Does eGroupware write some mystery file to the
server preventing duplications or other installations? It's the community
edition, as a test prior to purchase.
