Error #224834 while working with importbuddy.php

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?

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

setenforce Permissive

Most likely, you need to make the directory owned by the webserver’s user. On Ubuntu, you’d run: <pre> sudo chown -R www-data:www-data /var/www/funnl </pre>

My first guess is /var/www/funnl.
