Warning: mkdir() failed (No such file or directory) in c:\easyphp\www\moodle\lib\moodlelib.php on line 1002
I'm a moodle newbie too and had the same problem. Sure one of the more experienced 'moodlers' will advise but hope the following helps!
If you haven't already done so, you need to create a folder called moodledata with another folder called 1 inside it.... The folders have to be outside the moodle directory. I chmodded it to 0777 think also 0755? might also work.. (not sure of the correct write access permissions). The structure would be something like:
c:\easyphp\www\moodledata\1 or /home/moodledata/1
Which is outside the actual moodle folder
c:\easyphp\www\moodle or /home/moodle
If the folder is already there, it means the read/write permissions haven't been set to allow the server to write to the directory.
Hope this helps
As Tracey says it all dependce on what system you got and what access you have to change things.. If you rent a webspace you might not have access to put this folder outside of the website, but it works to have the folder under your webspace too, just a little less secure but you still would need set the permissions on the folder..
Also don't forget to put the correct path to this folder in your config file.
I need your help .. I am receiving the same erro message (write access error to the moodle data file), but I am using Yahoo hosting.
I don't have access to the C drive, so do you have any suggestions?
