I am trying to install Dropplet on my Mavericks Server. I have created the site in Server and copied the files to the root directory.

When I go to configure it, I get the following error, "It seems that your config folder is not writable, please add the necessary permissions.".

I believe it comes from this line,

// Check if the install directory is writable.
$is_writable = (TRUE == is_writable(dirname(__FILE__) . '/'));

I have searched all over for what owner/group/permissions are needed for a website so Apache can write to it.

Anyone encountered this?


This seems to have worked: http://francoisdeschenes.com/2013/02/26/enable-write-permissions-for-apache-built-into-mac-os-x

Strange that this is not on by default?
