[maplab-users] Maplab frustration!
Wed, 26 Mar 2003 21:53:24 -0500

Well, I should probably let the MapLab guys respond, because I 
haven't tried this config with maplab, but this sounds like file 
permission problems. The effective uid/gid of the httpd process needs 
to have permissions to mkdir and write to the files listed below.

If I am right this has more to do with your need to set the 
permissions correctly than it does with configuring maplab. If this 
is the case, they might need better explaination to make this clear 
in the install docs.
