   Data directory changes 

Your site's data directory isn't properly set up. This directory is where 
Review Board will store various state and configuration needed to access 

Your data directory is currently at: /var/www/review.com/data
Permission problems 

The data directory must be writable by the web server. On Linux/Unix/Mac, 
you can fix this by typing:

    $ sudo chown -R apache "/var/www/review.com/data"

On Windows, right-click the data directory and change the ownership to 


drwxrwxrwx. 2 apache apache 4096 Jul  2 03:07 data
