I installed mythweb form source (git, 0.24-fixes) and found the
mythweb/data folder was missing.  I placed mythweb in /var/www/mythweb
then created /var/www/mythweb/data, /var/www/mythweb/data/cache and
/var/www/mythweb/data/tv_icons (I'm not sure if these last two were
needed or not).

I then changed the owner and permissions of the data directory.  For
Debian the apache2 user is www-data.

chgrp -R www-data /var/www/mythweb/data
chmod g+rw /var/www/mythweb/data

To get videos working in mythweb I made a simlink from
mythweb/data/video to the drive holding my video files.
