Default permission creating a FTP Folder
Posted on 2008-06-25
I'm moved a web site from a reseller server to a better VPS server in other company. Everything was ok until this problem with the permissions. In this site, the employees can upload a folder with images via FTP and going to a webpage, the thumbnails are created automatically.
Now, the problem is the permissions for the imagejpeg:
Warning: imagejpeg() [function.imagejpeg]: Unable to open 'fotos/test00/01.jpg_thmb.jpg' for writing: Permission denied in /home/....
In the previous site the folder "fotos" (where the images folders are uploaded) and all the images subfolders uploaded had 755 and works fine, but in this server I need 777 to make imagejpeg() write the file. That's not a big problem, but when someone upload a folder it's created with 755 permission and I can't ask the employees to change the permissions everytime they upload a folder. I know, it's a bad system but I developed it some years ago and they don't wan't to upgrade it yet.
1. Can I make it work with 755 like I used to?
2. If I can't, how can I setup the default folder permission to 777 when they are created in the folder "fotos"??
Really appreciate your help and time.
