    Hello there,

    I am in the process of switching hosting provider (moving from shared hosting to VPS) and I have installed XenForo, php and all the php requirements, however, when I go to ipaddress/forums it says:

    The following errors occurred while verifying that your server can run XenForo:

    • The directory /var/www/html/forums/data must be writable. Please change the permissions on this directory to be world writable (chmod 0777). If the directory does not exist, please create it.
    • The directory /var/www/html/forums/internal_data must be writable. Please change the permissions on this directory to be world writable (chmod 0777). If the directory does not exist, please create it.
    Please correct these errors and try again.

    I have made these changes, however, the error still persists (even when I restart apache).

    Thank you for any support,
    Pixel Squad LTD
