Get “can not chdir(/var/spool/mqueue/): Permission denied” during install.

  • Hi, I get this error during stage 1 of the install, I continue the install and the login page loads ok, but get Access Denied when entering PW, or viewing blog. I have deleted the DB and re installed a couple of times and also tried various permissions

    Any help would be great, Joemok

  • Is this on your own server, or is it a hosted environment?

    If the former, try chmod’ing /var/spool/mqueue to 755 as root. For the latter, you’ll need to contact your host to have this fixed.

    Hi Kafkaesqui. Thanks. Its on a hosted enviroment, Mailed them awaiting reply. Cant get to /var/spool/mqueue. More research reveals 2 problems. 1 Index.php will not load ( the directory indexes are not set so link to blog/ causues permission denied. and 2 i am getting links from the blog page as /blog/?cat=1 rather than /blog/index.php?cat=1 the index.php is missing from the link. So i guess i need to get this fixed first. Also I am sure there might be .htaccess problems.

    Thanks for help software looks great so i’m gonna battle on !

    In Admin> Options > Permalinks in the Structure enter /index.php?p=%post_id%.
    Fixes the missing index.php.
