Hi,
I am having some issues in getting SM to work on my Linux host.
I use hostgator.com which has PHP & Apache server.

I have followed the instructions provided by SM but still get this error:

Error opening ../data/default_pref
Could not create initial preference file!
/var/www/html/squirrelmail/data/ should be writable by user rsundra
Please contact your system administrator and report this error.

I am using my hostgator login & pwd for SM.
Is there a default user ID & PW for SM? If so, what?

Any comments on solving this wd be much appreciated!!

Your getting this error yet you use hostgator for hosting? Why are you not contacting them for support?
