Install Error - flush(): couldn't store datastr: store()

I've gone through the configuration script and everything works fine. There are no errors or warnings. But when I try to visit my WebHome I get the following error:

Software error:

flush(): couldn't store datastr: store(): couldn't open '[URL_REMOVED]/foswiki/working/tmp/cgisess_8632b2b108501432b2d3585ae30add83': Permission denied at [URL_REMOVED]/foswiki/lib/Foswiki/ line 570. 

I came across one posting on the Twiki site ( that mentions it. Something about an NFS locking issue. Any ideas on how to resolve it?

I solved this issue by changing some permissions on the working/tmp directory.

You solved this issue correctly: the working/tmp directory must be writable by the web server user.
