Could not write prefs file: OpenText.ini


I am trying to setup an opentext server and I have an issue where I am in the admin.index and setting new admin password. Once I update it and click Save Changes I am presented with the following error page:

Content Server Error:
[Could not write prefs file: /opt/opentext/contentserver/config/opentext.ini]

I checked in the filesystem and it has 777 and is owned by the user running tomcat. Any ideas why it would be doing that?

RE: Could not write prefs file: OpenText.ini

is this the same user that runs the OT services ?
