Error #224834 while working with importbuddy.php

Posted June 17, 2014 9.7k views
I am finally able to access the /var/www and now trying to use importbuddy.php to migrate my site to Digital Ocean but I am getting this error code: "Error #224834. This directory, `/var/www/funnl/`, is not write enabled according to the server. Please verify proper write permissions to continue." Where do I go to change the write permissions?

My first guess is /var/www/funnl.
Most likely, you need to make the directory owned by the webserver's user. On Ubuntu, you'd run:
sudo chown -R www-data:www-data /var/www/funnl

Also ensure SELinux is not in enforcing mode. If it is then on a centos box, run:

setenforce Permissive
