Hi all!
Today I did a test install of Silverstripe 4.0.0 Beta 3.
Installtion works fine, but afterwarts I get this warning:

[Warning] chmod(): Operation not permitted
Line 349 in /var/www/silver40.beta3/vendor/league/flysystem/src/Adapter/Local.php

All files and directories of my installation are:
- owned by www-user:www-user
- rights are set to 0664 for files
- rights are set to 0777 for all dirs

This warning comes up on all pages and backend too.

What is wrong here?
Thank yout!

Ok, got it!

System tries to chmod "assets/.htaccess" to 0600.
In fact it is already 0600 but the owner of this (and all other) files of the installation
is owned by a "hosting user" != www-data.
I could fix it as root user...

@developers: please take into account, other installations may not have root rights on their hostings...
