Hey Guys!

I need to keep ownership of new files or directories created by any user.

Example:
I have:
drwxr-xr-x 2 apache apache 1 Sep 19 11:17 /var/www/htdocs/website/

So, I need that when any user creates a new file or directory that inherit owner and group.

The group I resolved by setting sgid, so the group is inherit but the OWNER I dont know.

I do not like to create a shellscript and run it every 5 minutes thru crontad. It's a poor solution...

Some hint?

using chown in a script is the only way to accomplish this in Linux.  setuid is ignored on directories.

You can change the group permission to "writeable" then "apache" daemon can manipulate the files without be the owner of that files.

Just make sure all the user have
umask 002
  in there ~/.bashrc, ~/.profile or ~/.cshrc  file
   So all the the created files are group writeable.
