the user apache is running as does not have write priviliges to
/usr/loca/apache, so it can't make the change.

I think you shouldn't give it write access, though. Try moving the dir
to somewhere like /www/mason, where if something breaks, it still
doesn't harm your installation.

In your apache conf, search for the effective UID and GID, and use a
directory for which either the UID, the group, or both have write

Good luck!
