[pmwiki-users] FilePermissions

Dear Pmwiki Users,

I have attempted to enable uploads on our Wiki. In addition to changes in
the config file, I created an uploads directory and gave it world-writable
permissions using chmod 777 as described here:

Unfortunately, when I try to upload a file, I get this message:

*Warning*: mkdir() failed (Permission denied) in *
/var/www/public_html/pmwiki/pmwiki.php* on line *548*
PmWiki can't process your request

PmWiki needs to have a writable /pmwiki/ directory before it can continue.
You can create the directory manually by executing the following commands on
your server:

    mkdir //pmwiki
    chmod 777 //pmwiki

Does this mean that the webserver still does not have permission to write in
uploads or could there be another problem?

I would really appreciate any tips!

Thank you in advance,
