XF 1.5 New add on, error on installation

Hi, when i upload my addon and i try to install i have this problem:

#0 [internal function]: XenForo_Application::handlePhpError(2, 'mkdir(): Permis...', '/f...', 72, Array)
#1 /forum/library/XenForo/Helper/File.php(72): mkdir('install/addons/...')
#2 /forum/library/AddOnInstaller/Model/AddOn.php(17): XenForo_Helper_File::createDirectory('install/addons/...')
#3 l/forum/library/AddOnInstaller/ControllerAdmin/AddOn.php(69): AddOnInstaller_Model_AddOn->extractZip('/tmp/phpXamrxC')
#4 /forum/library/XenForo/FrontController.php(347): AddOnInstaller_ControllerAdmin_AddOn->actionInstallUpgrade()
#5 //forum/library/XenForo/FrontController.php(134): XenForo_FrontController->dispatch(Object(XenForo_RouteMatch))
#6 /forum/admin.php(13): XenForo_FrontController->run()
#7 {main}

Stato Richiesta

array(3) {
["url"] => string(55) "http://Site/forum/admin.php?add-ons/install-upgrade"
["_GET"] => array(1) {
["add-ons/install-upgrade"] => string(0) ""
["_POST"] => array(4) {
["resource_url"] => string(0) ""
["server_file_oldskool"] => string(0) ""
["_xfConfirm"] => string(1) "1"
["_xfToken"] => string(8) "********"

How can i fix this? The folders and file on the folder "data" and "internal data" have the 777 permission.

If an add-on does not install, you should be contacting the add-ons author for support. Can you install any other add-on?

The issue is that one of the directories that it needs to place files/create a directory does not have the rights to write/create files/directories by the HTTP user. It's a server config setup issue honestly.
