    Need to write to /tmp/silverstripe-cache - HELP! Link to this post

    I am trying to install SS but can't because of this error:

    User '*me*' needs to be able to write to this file:
    /tmp/silverstripe-cache

    The file is currently owned by '*somoneelse.biz*'. There is no user-group that contains both the web-server user and the owner of this file. Change the ownership of the file, create a new group, or temporarily make the file writeable by everyone during the install process.

    I have seen a couple threads on this but none helped or I just could not understand.

    so how do I edit this file?

    I have absolutly no knowledge of how DB's work.

    Please can someone help with a solution that doesn't assume knowledge of these things.

    This is my first install. I know the absolute basics of back end web server stuff. I am a website designer not a developer.

    Any help is really appreciated. Thanks!

    don't worry, you can create a folder named "silverstripe-cache" in you webroot (i.e. along side mysite, cms and saphire) and silverstirpe will use that instead.
