Description udavidson 2022-11-27 18:39:46 UTC
Description of problem:
After installing pgadmin4-httpd, I get a 500 page when accessing "localhost/pgadmin". In the apache error logs I see:
PermissionError: [Errno 13] Permission denied: '/var/log/pgadmin'

The package "pgadmin4-web" from pgadmin.org (https://www.pgadmin.org/download/pgadmin-4-rpm/) has a script which (afaik) corrects the permission for such directories: /usr/pgadmin4/bin/setup-web.sh

It seems like this script is missing? Thank you

Steps to Reproduce:
1. clean fedora 37 + apache
2. install pgadmin4-httpd
3. restart apache
4. navigate to localhost/pgadmin
5. look at /var/log/httpd/error_log

Actual results:
500 page

Expected results:
normal functioning site

Also I just noticed that it creates the directory "/var/var/log/pgadmin/" instead of just "/var/log/pgadmin/" - this might be accidental?
