10.01. Joomla pernissions?

Asked by peter on 2011-01-21

If I like to add an image to a new article, I'll get the error message: Warning: Failed to move file! Unable to upload file.

If I like to save a CSS file, I get the error message: Could not save data. Error: An error occurred. The file css/black.css could not be saved (I started fgrep -r css/black.css 'and got from fgrep: /opt/lampp/htdocs/xampp/lang.tmp: Permission denied).

I guess it's something with missing permissions.

How can I set the valid permissions in the Joomla folder for directories and the files? Thanks in advance.
Peter

peter@peter:~$ ls -la /opt/lampp/htdocs/xampp/lang.tmp
-rw------- 1 nobody root 2 2011-01-15 23:57 /opt/lampp/htdocs/xampp/lang.tmp

Thanks.

ok then currently nobody has access, you may need to chown and chmod the file but I would look online to see what is appropriate.

Can you give me an example for chmod and chown?

I'm new with Linux and I can't create the command needed. I miss the knowledge.

Thanks a lot.
