Check that the cache and changes.log can be written (by the webserver
user... This is likely OK, since do=check doesn't complain).
Also, clearing out the cache might be a good idea (cd <dokuwiki root
directory>; rm -rf data/cache/?/*).

All the data/* subdirectories _and all content below that_ need be
writeable... I'm not exactly sure as to how thoroughly do=check will
check this. Doing a recursive chown and/or chmod vannot be wrong

Also, do you have anything ... interresting... set in httpd.conf
and/or .htaccess? DW can "survive" quite "harsh" environments
(safe_mode etc), but one might need ... adjust... things. Those errors
usually make the DW completely non-functional, so... We would've
noticed that one quicker:-)
