    When I am running the install script it is not happy with the www and the www-templates directory. It says it cannot edit them or something. I have added about every security I can to those folder and still nothing. Can I move the folders to another location and update apache and see if it works or does it need to be in /usr/local/mysar/ .

      I had also the same problem regarding web wizard, its says:

      Checking where adodb template cache directory is writeable...Failed!

      You need to set the directory /usr/local/mysar/www-templates to be writable by the web server process. This can be done by executing the following as root:
      chown apache /usr/local/mysar/www-templates
      chmod o+rwx /usr/local/mysar/www-templates

      i use the command but nothings happened. what was the  error say?

        If the standard commands don't solve your problem and you can't figure out the reason, try the following:
        chmod 777 /usr/local/mysar/www-templates

            And your problem persists? Strange...

            It seems that your apache server process can't access that directory for some reason. Ensure that all the parent directories have enough permissions too...

            Other than that, I don't think I can help you any more. There must be a strange situation on your system that requires a closer look by someone more experienced...
