Hi Brian,

Check what user apache2 runs as (probably www-data but depends on what distro you use).  Then make sure that user can write to the /opt/rt4/var/mason_data/obj directory (chown -R www-data:www-data /opt/rt4/var/mason_data/obj).

To make sure apache2 runs as www-data (or to find out what it does run as) check the output of "ps aux | grep apache2".  There will be one process running as root but the others will run as a different user; that is the one you want.

I was installing RT-Extension-ActivityReports into RT 4.4.0 after the install I ran
rm -rf /opt/rt4/var/mason_data/obj
then service apache2 restart

Apache restarted ok but RT will not load. I found this error in syslog but not sure what to fix.
[40707] mkdir /opt/rt4/var/mason_data/obj/3407077840: Permission denied at /usr/share/perl5/HTML/Mason/Compiler/ToObject.pm line 115.#012#012Stack:#012

[/usr/share/perl5/Plack/Util.pm:301]#012  [/usr/share/perl5/

Then I google clearing mason cache and it shows
rm -Rf /usr/local/rt4/var/mason_data/obj/*
Not usre if the asterisk at end makes difference I tried that after still no luck.

Anyone see what is wrong and how to fix?  Greatly appreciated.
