I ran into the same problem, read everything I found (even the German posts :)) but still no luck. I’ve been running a development instance on my local computer for a while and I’m ready to make the move to a production Linux server.
I’m using a DreamHost DreamCompute cloud server. I’m not able to login as root nor su to root but I can do sudo commands. Let me tell you in advance that I’m not expert in Linux at all.
I have installed apache, PHP 7.0 and MariaDB already, they are working fine. I got past the composer part of the neos installation and I have a /var/www/html/neos directory with the proper content in it.
I’m at the setup step, I’m trying to access the server remotely by http://server.com/setup and I get the following error:
Flow could not create the directory
"/var/www/html/neos/Data/Temporary/Production/". Please check the file
permissions manually or run "sudo ./flow flow:core:setfilepermissions"
to fix the problem. (Error #1441354578)
I login as user ‘centos’ and apache is running as user apache:apache.
Yes I executed sudo ./flow core:setfilepermissions centos apache apache with no effect:
TYPO3 Flow File Permission Script

ls -al /var/www/html/neos returns:

since I gave all permissions to everything under neos to everyone to test it but it didn’t solve.
If I create the Production directory manually it will go past that step but then complains about another file being not writable.
Please help I’ve been struggling it whole day and I’m really out of ideas.
