I just built a RedHat server on AWS to act as a Test server and cloned a Git repository that has my Drupal installation in it. After importing the Prod MySQL database for both Drupal and CiviCRM and adjusting the civicrm.setting.php file I tried accessing the website. I get the error message:
CiviCRM does not have permission to write temp files in /var/www/html/natureserve/sites/default/files/civicrm/templates_c/en_US/, Exiting
The root directory of the website is owned by the 'apache' user and I set the permissions to '777' (both recursively). I know this is not recommended but I wanted to see if it was indeed a file permissions issue.
Any thoughts as to what else I can try?
