Greetings.

I have a folder '/var/www'. I used chown to add a group to this folder and chmod to allow the owner and the group accessing it. My user is a member of the group. Attempting to run 'mkdir' I get 'Permission denied' error.

mvlabat@mvlabat ~ $ mkdir /var/www/test.dev
mkdir: cannot create directory '/var/www/test.dev': Permission denied
mvlabat@mvlabat ~ $ stat /var/www

mvlabat,

Permissions are not 'live'. They are picked up when the user next logs in.

Do you mean that I have to relog/reboot?

I did it before I've checked it again. No result

Thank you for your answer

The matter is that if I set chmod 777 I get the permission. So it seems like my user is not recognized being in the group or group "apache" is not actually an owner.

The user apache is the owner, not the group apache.
The group associated to the directory is root.
