FS#1941 Please create all cache dirs upfront
I have some odd security setting on the linux root server I am using for Dokuwiki, that requires me to own the directories that php my write to even though the web server runs under a different user.
This is not a big problem since I can change the owner of the directory, but this gets broken when new directories are created in the cache dir.
After trying a few times, I figured out how the cache dirs work, so I could create all and now it works.
However it would be better if all cache directories are created upfront and checked for writable by the install script.
This way, running chown once will fix all directories.
Directory creation is crucial for DokuWiki regardless of the cache directory - there are also directories created for namespaces - those can't be precreated.
