Problem with the Installation

I have a problem with the Installation of Fileman 3.0.0. My system is a openSUSE 10.3 with an Apache2 Server. My Apache Server is configured with SSL and is running and up.

Here my installation:

cd /tmp
tar -xzf fileman-3.0.0-multiple.tar.gz
cd fileman-3.0.0

CGI Path : /srv/www/cgi-bin/fileman
CGI URL : https://myurl/cgi-bin/fileman
Private Path : /srv/www/cgi-bin/fileman/private
Static Path : /srv/www/htdocs/fileman
Static URL : https://myurl/fileman
Root Path : /srv/www/cgi-bin/fileman
Path to Perl : /usr/bin/perl
Username :
Admin Email :
SMTP/Sendmail : /usr/sbin/sendmail
Registration Number :

After the installation I can connect to the fileman over this url:

I can see the filemanwebsite and I can login. After the login I would like to create a new user and then I get the message "
Cannot open the fileman.dat: No such file or directory"

What is my problem? Thank you!

I'm by no means an expert, but i was told:

This could be something to do with file permission.

fileman.dat must have 666 as permission. If not, run the command below:

prompt> chmod 666 /srv/www/cgi-bin/fileman/private/fileman.dat

Hope this helps.
