Can't write into config directory not fixing up even after granting permissions to write? How to fix this issue?

Can’t write into config directory! This can usually be fixed by giving the webserver write access to the config directory.

I’m on centos 7 and getting this error. I understand the error. It means I need to change the permissions of config directory to be writable. The config file is located at


This is the current permissions of config directory. What command do I need to use here?

drwxr-xr-x.  2 apache apache    67 Apr 19 21:28 config

I did this

sudo chmod 770 /var/www/html/nextcloud/config

But it’s not working.

Again I did this:

sudo chown -R apache:apache /var/www/html/nextcloud/config

But neither is this working. I’ve restarted the apache server as well.

After rebooting the server, the issue is fixed.
