Wordpress: How To Allow httpd to write to /usr/share/wordpress/wp-content/uploads



I installed Wordpress 2.8.3 on Fedora 11 and attempted to upload a photo to the directory /usr/share/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2009/09/, but failed even though my Wordpress "author" role permits file uploads. Wordpress uses php for scripting. I suspected that I had set file permissions incorrectly. Here are the permissions on /usr:

drwxrwxr-x.  16 root apache  4096 2009-04-12 19:05 usr

I ran `setsebool`:

[root deafeng3 /]# setsebool -P allow_httpd_anon_write=1
[root deafeng3 /]# service httpd restart
Stopping httpd:                                            [  OK  ]
Starting httpd:                                            [  OK  ]


I wrote a php script to see if it can move a single file just to /usr/. Here is the error message that appears in /var/log/httpd/error_log:

[Wed Sep 09 22:25:30 2009] [error] [client 127.0.0.1] PHP Warning: move_uploaded_file(/usr/Cochran.jpg) [<a href='function.move-uploaded-file'>function.move-uploaded-file</a>]: failed to open stream: Permission denied in /var/www/html/testuploads.php on line 35, referer: http://localhost/testuploads.php [Wed Sep 09 22:25:30 2009] [error] [client 127.0.0.1] PHP Warning: move_uploaded_file() [<a href='function.move-uploaded-file'>function.move-uploaded-file</a>]: Unable to move '/tmp/phpJFMNbS' to '/usr/Cochran.jpg' in /var/www/html/testuploads.php on line 35, referer: http://localhost/testuploads.php


But I still can't write to /usr. If I can't write to that, how can I continue down the file hierarchy to write to the true target directory of /usr/share/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/*? That is to say, the uploads directory and every subdirectory under it should be writable by httpd.

Thanks
