Folder permissions

#1 Post by silas2 »

I run:

Code: Select all

public_html$ sudo chmod -R 775 /var
But in my browser I see:

Code: Select all

public_html/var/page_cache" is not writable 
What am I misunderstanding? Doesn't -R mean recursively apply to all sub-folders?
Doesn't 775 give all users write permissions?

Could this be something to do with SELinux? When i type "sudo sestatus" I'm getting command not found....is it running?
This is exactly the issue i'm getting https://magento.stackexchange.com/quest ... t-writable
but does SELinux run by default?

It seems /etc/selinux/config File is missing which according to the selinuxproject.org means its disabled, so I'm left wondering why -R 775 isn't making subfolders writeable.
