Solved - JFolder::create: Could not create directory; Warning: Failed to move file!

I just moved my website which is built in Joomla. When I wanted to install an extension, Joomla spits out an error "
JFolder::create: Could not create directory; Warning: Failed to move file!". Such a thing has not been observed before the transfer of the website; thus, I suspect that Joomla does not have a permission to create a directory. What could have gone wrong in the process of transition of the website? Otherwise, the website runs ok.

Got the solution in

Basically, one should modify the config file log_path and tmp_path to:

$log_path = './logs';
$tmp_path = './tmp';
