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
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
