Permmission Error when adding attachment, report and log directories


#1

When attempting to add the attachment, report and log directories during the TestRail Installation Wizard we are getting the following error.

Field Attachment Directory is not a valid (writable) directory. Please either create the directory or adjust its permissions.
Field Report Directory is not a valid (writable) directory. Please either create the directory or adjust its permissions.
Field Log Directory is not a valid (writable) directory. Please either create the directory or adjust its permissions.

/tmp/testrail/TestRailQualAttach
/tmp/testrail/TestRailQualReport
/tmp/testrail/TestRailQualLog

The directories exist are all owned by apache and have the correct permissions

ls -l

drwx------ 2 apache apache 4096 Nov 30 15:20 TestRailQualAttach
drwx------ 2 apache apache 4096 Nov 30 15:20 TestRailQualLog
drwx------ 2 apache apache 4096 Nov 30 15:20 TestRailQualReport

Has anyone experienced similar issues in Linux when adding these directories in the TestRail Installation Wizard?
