Making folders writable
edited December 2010
I received a question regarding making folders writable and figured I'd post some helpful links if anyone else had a similar question:
In the same vein.. The install notes on .91 say to make the "/fuel/codeigniter/cache/dwoo/compiled" directory write-able.
I found I have to make the dwoo directory (so one up) writable otherwise error city.. On OSX 10.5.8/xampp and OSX 10.6.x/Apple install
Thanks Lance. I've updated the install directions to include that folder as well.
And if you are using Ubuntu, this is it.
So.... does this need to be 777 or can it be 766?
I think that may depend on your server/user setup for 766 permissions working.
standard setup is to chown the directories to the user the webserver runs under, and set permissions to 755
777 is almost always a bad idea for a directory accessible through the webserver, as soon as someone finds (for instance) a sql injection loophole, you'll have unwanted visitors on your server
I'm having a problem with file ownership when writing to an assets folder subdirectory. In my case, fuel is accessing my server as 501:admin (user group). I've created the subdirectory assets/gallery_images, and given it 501:admin ownership, and 777 permissions. However, when I save to this directory (using the simpleimage image processing class) the file is given www-data ownership, essentially locking fuel out from further interactions with the file... Any thoughts here are appreciated...
