Making a linux directory writeable for the installer

Post by troelssmit » Fri Oct 01, 2004 9:36 am


my php.ini was already set for safe_mode off
and nothing was set in the open_basedir and disable_functions variables in php.ini. They are simply initialized without any arguments.

What permissions should the directories have ?
For now I have chown it to root.web but that leaves the program without writing permissions.

What should I do ? What is name the apache webserver uses when it searches for rights to create directories, etc ?
Thanks for helping !

Best Regards,
Troels Smit

don't set the rights of the directory to root. Do you use PHP aa apache module or as CGI?
