    Permission denied during make install
    Hi guys,

    I always have problem when installing from scratch.

    I am trying to install Apache 2.2 on my Macbook (which I bought start of 2008).

    I am just following the regular instructions provided on the website...

    When it comes to the $make install, I get a lot of errors.

    Code:
    Making install in srclib
    Making install in apr
    make[3]: Nothing to be done for `local-all'.
    /Users/yannickli/Downloads/httpd-2.2.14/srclib/apr/build/mkdir.sh /usr/local/apache2/lib /usr/local/apache2/bin /usr/local/apache2/build \
    		     /usr/local/apache2/lib/pkgconfig /usr/local/apache2/include
    mkdir /usr/local/apache2/lib
    mkdir: /usr/local/apache2/lib: Permission denied
    mkdir /usr/local/apache2/bin
    mkdir: /usr/local/apache2/bin: Permission denied
    mkdir /usr/local/apache2/build
    mkdir: /usr/local/apache2/build: Permission denied
    mkdir /usr/local/apache2/lib
    mkdir: /usr/local/apache2/lib: Permission denied
    mkdir /usr/local/apache2/lib/pkgconfig
    mkdir: /usr/local/apache2/lib: No such file or directory
    mkdir /usr/local/apache2/include
    mkdir: /usr/local/apache2/include: Permission denied
    make[2]: *** [install] Error 1
    make[1]: *** [install-recursive] Error 1
    make: *** [install-recursive] Error 1
    I am, of course, logged in as admin. I tried "sudo chmod 775" on the "/usr/local/" directory. That was not really helpful.

    Same problem when I tried to install Mplayer.

    Are you doing a 'sudo make install' ?
    You need to do install as root, not change dir ownership.
