We have a custom built* CMS** - however we have currently have problems writing files. I’m hoping there is an elegant way out of this dilemma.
The liftport.com folder has RW for the liftportgroup user, R for everyone else. This is the way it should be of course.
xxx:~/liftport.com> ls -la *html
-rw-r–r-- 1 liftportgroup pg106443 33 2005-11-07 15:22 impressum.html
-rw-r–r-- 1 liftportgroup pg106443 4025 2005-11-07 13:35 index.html
The CMS (built using PHP) wants to write files to /liftport.com
What is the ‘best’ way to allow a PHP process to write files, while
a) retaining security
b) allowing us to keep control in the event the CMS goes berserk and we have to manually edit files and so on.
Thanks in advance,
*Yes, I know. Mambo support is provided by Dreamhost now. This solution was a ‘done deal’ over my objections. Life is a matter of picking your battles, sometimes.
** It actually is a pretty slick package, and it suits us, or seems to.
