Check your command:
chown -R interch:interch
chmod -R interch:interch
I generally make the directories 700, but since you're on a test system,
make them 755...

Don't worry, it's a a webserver in a LAN, no way to access it from
the outside, it`s just my testing system;-)

that is more or less what I already did in first place (my last email
was just "trying EVERYTHING to make it work").
OK, but I gave it another try:
I deleted all users and groups and related files.
I started again with ./configure etc etc.
but again, when I did the restart I got:
bash: /root/.bashrc: Permission denied
Killing Interchange server 13788 with TERM
Low traffic settings.
...UI is loaded....
Configuring catalog construct...
Couldn't change to /home/name/data/interchange/catalogs:
construct: error in configuration. Skipping.
construct: config error -- Couldn't change to
/home/name/data/interchange/catalogs: Permission denied.
Interchange server started in INET and UNIX mode(s) (process id
and (before you ask), all directories are "chmod -R interch:interch":
sorry, didn't work. any other ideas?
