    • Sounds like you had a problem with the rights permissions during installation.

      Elgg should create files (incl. settings.php) and folders automatically.

      Then you must create these directories:


      Now set the permissions:

      chmod -R 750 /home/wordsmith/data/
      chown -R www-data:www-data /home/wordsmith/data/

      That's all!
