Hi, i am new to drupal. I managed to get drupal7 up and running and updated to 7.15 but having problems with a module. apparently the sites were installed to /etc/drupal/7/ by default on my ubuntu box. i don't recall being asked about that. seems like a weird spot. anyway,even though I set the user for that folder and subfolders to the same user as I did for /usr/share/drupa7/ and that ftp user acount can write to it when I do a test with an ftp client logged in as that user, the Drupal update page won't let me update.
Update failed! See the log below for more information. Your site is still in maintenance mode.
Error installing / updating
File Transfer failed, reason: /etc/drupal/7/sites/all/modules/views/D7UPGRADE.txt is outside of the /usr/share/drupal7
