PHP create directory permission problem
Posted on 2006-03-24
I want to be able to get PHP to create a directory (and the add a writable file to it).
No problem you say, mkdir() is the answer.
However, I want PHP to be able to create a directory in a directory created by someone else.
drwxr-xr-x 3 mortal admin 102 Mar 23 21:41 .
drwxrwxrwx 61 al admin 2074 Mar 23 21:49 ..
drwxr-xr-x 2 mortal admin 68 Mar 23 21:41 test
The 'test' directory was successfully created by user 'mortal'. I want PHP to create a subdirectory called 'meta' but it doesn't have the permission to do so?!?!
Can anyone tell me how to either gain permission or otherwise get around this problem please?
