Hello,

I have installed apache2 on Debian Bullseye.

I am attempting to install an application: Baculum onto my system and Baculum requires the Web server to have write access to the following file:

/etc/baculum/Config-api-cache

I was hoping someone on this forum would be able to advise how to configure apache2 on Debian to achieve this.

Thank you

VW

You may use chown and chmod for Apache to be able to write to that directory.

Hello,

I tried that, but didn't work.

Should the user/group that I be granting permissions to be:
www-data

Thanks

If your Apache runs as www-data then chown to root:www-data and give the group write access.
