Fix CMS cache path permissions

Review URL(s):


The CMS we are using for static content attempts to create a directory for intermediate files, e.g. /var/cache/$repository. Since the associated scripts are not executed as user root, which is the only one allowed to change the fist-level content of /var/cache, this operation fails due to insufficient permissions.


Create the respective sub-directory in manual fashion upfront.


  • Extend class web::server to include the creation of /var/cache/$repository
  • Ensure the cache directory is owned or just writable by user www
  • Suggest the use of a distinct sub-directory, e.g. /var/cache/cms, or providing a configuration option, at least
