read only file system
« on: April 26, 2022, 05:58:19 AM »
Hello guys,

I have installed apache on my rpi2 and I wanted to test it so I tried to modify  tmp/tcloop/apache2.4/usr/local/share/apache2.4/index.html but when I want to edit it and save the modification they told that :
readonly file
And when I try to change the permission on it I get this :
chmod : index.html: Read-only file system

Any tought?
It's fine

Try this:
Code: [Select]
sudo cp /tmp/tcloop/apache2.4/usr/local/share/apache2.4/index.html /usr/local/share/apache2.4
..and then edit /usr/local/share/apache2.4/index.html

Hi juanito,

After I've done what you told me I still have the same problem, maybe it's because in /usr/local/share/apache2.4 I already had an symbolic link for index.html
It's fine

You need to overwrite the symlink with the actual file.

Hi juanito,

I overwrite the symbolic link and I reedited the file but when I do sudo apachectl -k start nothing change on the web page
So I tried to overwrite /tmp/tcloop/apache2.4/usr/local/share/apache2.4/index.html with the new one but it doesn't work either
Any tought ?

/tmp/tcloop files are read-only. As Juanito wrote, overwrite the symlinked destination,

I was in the wrong place from the start I can modify  index.html in /usr/local/apache2/htdocs/index.html

My bad
