having a file saving permissions problem from within a controller...
f = File.new("/home/path/to/I-A-files.txt", "w")
Errno::EACCES (Permission denied - /home/path/to/I-A-files.txt):
this file path is not within RAILS path but rather outside of it.
files saved without a path are clearly saved in the RAILS_ROOT directory
as user 'craig'
user 'craig' clearly has permissions to save files in that path
(actually, the path is an NFS mounted path but I don't see why that
Obviously I am missing some bit of information that would tell me why
