In the middle of upgrading from D6 to D7 and I don't have permissions to mkdir or change the name of the modules directory

Description

I'm following this guide: https://support.mayfirst.org/wiki/upgrade_drupal and I can't rename the modules directory or even mkdir. The site is in maintenance mode, and I'm stuck because I need the right permissions. The directories are owned by the user I am logged in as.

nesri@goldman:~/nesri.org/web/sites/default$ mkdir modules.d6 mkdir: cannot create directory `modules.d6': Permission denied

Hi Ben,

I went ahead and created the modules.d6 directory for you. Generally, you'll want to keep your modules and themes in the sites/all/ directory rather than the sites/default/ directory. I ran the following command to allow the creation of the modules.d6 directory.

nesri@goldman:~/nesri.org/web/sites$ chmod 755 default/
nesri@goldman:~/nesri.org/web/sites$

hope this helps,

~/ross

Thanks Ross. I had just worked around it by moving the modules into a directory I created in nesri's home directory.
