I noticed that my magento onlineshop does not create any files in var/cache, var/report and it does not report anything to the logfiles in var/log.

The var directory has the permissions drwxrwxr-x and the user and group are set correctly

Logging is enabled:

What is going on?

  • What permissions do you applied to var dir – Ylgen Guxholli Mar 5 at 13:30

    Glad you solved that :) – Ylgen Guxholli Mar 5 at 14:03

I solved it. I changed the permission of the folder var to 777 temporarily. Then because I had error reporting and developer mode turned on in the index.php, I got an error saying that the cache dir is not writable.

So it was obvious that the user or group were not correct. It turned out that I had to change the group wwwrun to www.

So I executed chown -R myuser:www * in my magento root.
