Re: [SM-USERS] a problem -- WHAT problem, please?

Yavuz Maslak-5
Hello

As I wrote first my mail, I could not log in squirrel webmail I get an error
as below ;
Error opening ../data/default_pref
> Default preference file not found or not readable!
> Please contact your system administrator and report this error.

perhaps it may be a hint :
When I installed squirrel as first, it worked well. I removed it and I
installed squirrel again and that problem started.

There is no problem about write access and other permission as below

Here is the rights of squirrel directory and the location of squirrel
directory
ls -l /usr/local/www/squirrelmail/

No. It only shows that only www user can read/write to data directory.
Permissions are not correct for php safe_mode=on setup. They are not
correct, if your webserver runs not on 'www' user.

I am asking for the third time. What are your PHP Safe mode settings and
webserver user?

http://www.squirrelmail.org/wiki/TestPHPSettings

If you are running RedHat Server, Centos4 or Fedora Core 3 or newer, you
haven't provided enough information. If SELinux is enabled - disable it or
recheck selinux policies.
