Hello Experts,

I am receiving an Error - Cannot Open File for writing log. This error occurs when one of my users tries to login on the admin side. All of my other users (20 in all) who have access to the admin site can login with out any issues, only this one user.

This error has me stumped, because if my other users are able to login the log file than must be setup correctly.

Joomla v3
php v5.3.3

I've done a google search but nothing came back fitting to this particular issue.

Thanks,

neo

I have corrected this error, the log file was not actually correct it was /log, I had to change to ./log.

However I ran into a new issue as outlined here: https://github.com/Skullbock/joomla-cms/commit/dac70c8c023a2cf1079fa8c31fa2ed3dc393f966

The solutions noted on the above link did not fix the issue. I've had to roll back my installation to 3.2.0
