files/folders; users; access rights; problems
Posted on 2003-11-30
I'm currently developping several scripts that will be creating folders and files on the webserver.
The script will also allow to upload files via HTTP.
I'm running into problems with access rights.
Since the webserver is running on the username "apache" and my account on the server is "doppy".
This results in problems with creating files or folders, removing files and folders, editing files and also uploading files.
I'm also having problems with downloading the files with FTP, I get the message that I'm not allowed to access the file.
How would I cope with these problems?
I'm sure someone has bumped into this before and I like to know how you solved the problem.
