Bigace needs proper file permissions to run or even start the installation process.

If Bigace won't start because of the message:

An error occurred
Error: 0 - cache_dir is not writable

then you might need to adjust the Bigace cache directory “/storage/cache/”. Do so by executing:

chown www-data:www-data storage/cache/

If you see a “Directory- and File Permission” page during the installation, please adjust the permissions of following directories:

chown www-data:www-data application/bigace/i18n/ 	
chown www-data:www-data sites/ 	
chown www-data:www-data application/bigace/configs/ 	
chown www-data:www-data public/ 	
chown www-data:www-data public/.cache/ 	
chown www-data:www-data public/jquery/ 	
chown www-data:www-data public/system/admin/css/ 	
chown www-data:www-data storage/logging/ 	
chown www-data:www-data storage/updates/
