I have just finished installing magento 2.1.2 and Im trying to add a test product.
It wasnt letting me and simply coming up with an error which after removing sample from the error log tells me "
Can't create directory /var/www/html/magento/var/generation/Magento/Catalog/Model/Product/Attribute/Backend/Tierprice/.
I have the folder permissions set to 777 across the board as it is on a local server and purely for testing.
Anyone have any ideas why its doing this?
I have a feeling I may have needed to run
chown -R john:www-data /var/www/html/magento/
This may have been the problem I was having across the board with the install not going the way I wanted it to.
Will test tomorrow on a new VM.
