Not able to populate dummy data in phosphorum initial install


Installed phosphorum successfully on my WHM server. But when populating database using command usr/bin/php /home/xxxx/public_html/forum/forum seeder:populate , I am getting this message in command prompt

Start X-Powered-By: PHP/5.6.31 Content-type: text/html; charset=UTF-8

But no entries in database. When i check app/logs/application.log, it says,

[04-Aug-2017 17:53:34][DEBUG] [boot] Parsed options: ["seeder:populate"] [04-Aug-2017 17:53:34][DEBUG] [boot] Task definition: {"task":"seeder","action":"populate","params":[]} [04-Aug-2017 17:53:34][ERROR] Whoops\Exception\ErrorException: fwrite() expects parameter 1 to be resource, string given in file /home/xxxx/public_html/forum/forum on line 28 Stack trace:

Whoops\Exception\ErrorException->() /home/xxxxx/public_html/forum/forum:28
fwrite() /home/xxxx/public_html/forum/forum:28

I googled, did not get any solution. Tried different ways to my knowledge without success. Did anyone get this kind of error while installing? if so, any solutions?

check your app/logs folder authorizations

He must be attribued to www-data group and have write access for this group

@phil67000: app/logs folder has read/write access. I did not get what www-data group?

If anybody has sql dummy data, can you please share the .sql file with me or is there any other way to import dummy data into database directly/manually ?

See your apache.conf file

i have this in mine

# Utilisateur et Group sous lesquels les processus du serveur seront lanc├ęs
User www-data
Group www-data

when you create a folder acceded by apache ou have to do chown www-data:www-data folderName or at least chown xxxxxx:www-data folderName xxxxxx = the user owner of the files
