Apache :: Permissions For Web Root

Sep 1, 2014

My web server starts from /var/www/xxx/xxx/

I have installed phpmyadmin, and i tried placing the folder both in /var/www/xxx/xxx/ and /var/www/ and neither seem to work.

How I can get it to show up in the /var/www/xxx/xxx so i can just access from my.site.name/phpmyadmin

Even more preferred would be keeping it in the /var/www/ folder, but still being able to access my site at my.site.name/index.php and my phpadmin by my.site.name/phpmyadmin

Permissions On Apache Server

Jun 10, 2009

Not sure if this is an Apache issue but I'm guessing it is. I also have cPanel on this server.

I made a PHP script and placed it on my server. This script has a function that will create a new file on the server, say a .txt file with information in it. When I go to do anything with that file that is created such as edit it, I get a permission denied from the server.

For example, FTP returns:

"Response: 550 Rename/move failure: Permission denied. "

Someone guessed that it is possible that when the PHP file is creating a new file on the server, it automatically places its permissions under root/apache, making it inaccessible for the cPanel user... if this were the case how could I potentially solve this issue?

We have several sites on one server. When I use the plesk wordpress manager it some how updates the User and Group permissions on folders and files with the username apache. How or what command do I run to get it to use the site username and psacln. It appears something maybe in an update or whatever has caused this issue. This only occurs with wordpress and drupal updates from the plesk interface.

What command can I run just to update the permissions to update all users to a username and psacln security settings on folders and directories.Running Plesk 12.0.18 and CentOS7

Fail2ban Won't Set Jail On Plesk-apache - Permissions Error

Jan 10, 2015

Compliments about the integration of Fail2Ban. I saw a lot of blocks on different IP addresses that tried to logon to the server. Fail2Ban is setup to monitor SSH, FTP, and some more.

It is however not possible to activate the "plesk-apache" and "plesk-apache-badbot" jails.

I receive the following error when I try to activate the jails:

Cannot activate the selected jails: f2bmng failed: ERROR NOK: ('plesk-apache',)
ERROR NOK: (13, 'Permission denied')
ERROR NOK: (13, 'Permission denied')
ERROR:f2bmng:Command '['/usr/bin/fail2ban-client', 'reload', 'plesk-apache']' returned non-zero exit status 255
ERROR:f2bmng:Failed to reload following jails due to errors in configuration: plesk-apache

When i look into the logfile of fail2ban, i see that there are no permissions for the log files:
2015-01-10 20:14:40,987 fail2ban.comm [19428]: WARNING Command ['set', 'plesk-apache', 'addlogpath', '/var/www/vhosts/system/[domainname]/logs/error_log'] has failed. Received IOError(13, 'Permission denied')

The file permissions are set as following on all the log files:
-rw-r--r-- root root

I'd really like to activate Fail2Ban for Apache too.

Apache Document Root On Linux

Sep 5, 2007

Basic question: does it matter where I set the document root for apache on a Linux system? I've googled this but haven't found a good answer.

This is for a VPS server running the Ubuntu (Debian) server os that I'm configuring. I'd prefer to simply create a new directory off the root and set that as the document root in the apache config file. Would this present any kind of security issue?

If that's no good, what's the best choice -- stick to the default?

Apache :: Cannot Change Document Root

Oct 26, 2013

I just made a fresh install of the following :

Apache 2.4 (x64)
PHP 5.5.5 Thread Safe (x64)
OS: Windows 8.1 (x64)

And I think everything is working. When openingen I see the apache message that the server is running and when executing phpinfo() it displays the PHP info.

My problem is that I'm trying to change the document root.

I have change the following in the httpd.conf:

DocumentRoot "C:/Apache24/htdocs"
<Directory "C:/Apache24/htdocs">

The lines abowe have been change to:

DocumentRoot "D:/www"
<Directory "D:/www">

After this I did a reboot of the apache server using the CMD httpd -k restart. I even tried restarting using the apachemonitor and rebooted the whole server. But apache still loads the files from c:/Apache24/htdocs

I can't find any more entries with htdocs to change. What am I missing?

Apache :: How To Use Data Outside Of Root Directory

Jan 2, 2014

I have home a server Apache. I want to put all my party songs in one partition and can listen from anywhere without having to take CDs. I have my site in C:Site and the songs I put it in D:Songs.

In php I see the D:Songs directory, I can read subdirectories, I see the .mp3 and .Wav files, I created the playlist, but the audio player doesn't start.

If I move the songs files in C:Site or C:SiteSongs goes perfectly, I can listen my music, but I do not want to be there.
Why I see in D:Songs, but does not want to go? In httpd.conf I have:

DocumentRoot "C:/Site/"
<Directory />
Options FollowSymLinks
AllowOverride None
Order allow,deny
Allow from all


<Directory "C:/Site/">
Options Indexes FollowSymLinks
AllowOverride all
Order Allow,Deny
Allow from all

I try to put also:

<Directory "D:/Songs/">
Options Indexes FollowSymLinks
AllowOverride all
Order Allow,Deny
Allow from all

bud does not work. "What Can I Do"?

Apache :: Document Root Must Be Directory

Jun 2, 2014

In httpd.conf I have

DocumentRoot "C:/Programme/Apache_Group/Tomcat-8.0.5/webapps/ROOT/"

2.4.9 is complaining about this having to be a directory. It is definiteley. I can browse it with explorer.

When I change this to "C:/Program Files/..." it works.

Why is that? In the stock Win32 server I downloaded from the apache site I did not have to make this change.

Apache 2.2 / Php 5 Update: Calling Files Behind Root

May 24, 2008

With my old Apache 1 and PHP4 I was able to pull files from behind the public_html using a php file without any problems. Is there a reason why this does not work with Apache 2.2 and PHP5?

the piece of coding below is what grabs the image. Right now i'm just seeing a red X for each image.

PHP Code:

        if ($private == 1) {
        header("Content-type: image/jpeg"); 
        $im = imagecreatefromjpeg('/home/site1/private/' . $type . '/' . $mid . '-' . $iid . '.jpg'); 
        imagecolorallocate($im, 255, 255, 255);

Apache :: Virtual Host Not Using Its Web Root Doc Folder

Jul 29, 2014

I use Webmin (1.69) to work on my development environment. I am using Ubuntu Desktop 14.04 right now. I am not exactly an Ubuntu newbie but I would not call myself an expert either.

I created a virtual host (newdomain.local) with webmin. I filled in all the fields and saved the new VH definition. I added newdomain.local to my hosts file with an ip address of and restarted apache.

When I go to [URL] ...., it is not taking me to the VH's home page but to the default home page.

Why this might be happening?

Apache :: Applying Root Directory Attributes To All Subdirectories

Feb 18, 2013

I am running Apache2 server (version 2.2.16) on Debian Linux.

My document root for directory listings is set and in that folder I have a few other files to configure the formatting and visual effects. These are:


These files make the root directory look very nice. If I navigate in to a subdirectory, all of the formatting and visual effects are lost and the standard text layout is shown. Is there a way I can get ALL subdirectories in the root directory to take on the visual and layout effects from the root directory?

I know it works if I manually copy each of the files to each of the subdirectories which would be fine, but the subdirectories are created dynamically and new ones are added regularly.

Are Chained Root Ssl Certificates More Secure Than Single Root?

Nov 25, 2008

I have read that although chained root ssl certificates can be more difficult to install they are actually more secure since the root certificate cannot be compromised, only the intermediary.

Is this true? It looks like both google and amazon both use chained SGC certs.

FTP + Permissions

Jun 3, 2009

I'm trying to get FTP working on a FreeBSD 7.1 box running ProFTPd.

The service runs but the issue is that the users cannot write to their home dirs. The server returns a 550 error.

Previously ProFTPd ran as user and group of "www" but I changed it to "nobody", which did not change anything.

I'm sure the issue is that of the home dirs for the users being owned by the users themselves and the service account not having access to write in that directory.

I'm not sure what is best to do here. Do I lift permissions so everyone can write to the home dirs? or is there a better way?

777 Permissions For Www

Jun 2, 2009

Let me start off with saying: I haven't had any suspicious activity, nor do I think I was compromised.

I logged in as root, and was simply clicking around my dedicated server and came across a few folders with permissions at 777. ALL are above /public_html

Irregardless, is this safe? I recall reading a bunch of topics on here, that /tmp needs to be hardened. Isn't this also above /public_html?

For one example:
/var/tmp is chmod to 077
..inside is a bunch of sess_ files

Is this folder open to hacking?

Web Permissions

Jan 19, 2007

when I setup a server I don't really care about permissions, I do lot of nasty chmod 777 * and stuff to easily get away with permission issues, since I'm the only one with access anyway.

But for a server that may be used for webhosting, how do I go about setting permissions in home directories so that programs like apache/php can still read/write to the user's web data? I'm guessing I need to add the user apache to each user's group and chmod 770 but I'm not too sure how to go about that, or if that's even how I should do it.

IIS Permissions

Mar 27, 2008

how permissions work in IIS in basic english

I spent ages trying to get a crm system working on my server and it only worked without errors when I changed the anonymous user privileges to "change" instead of "read".

Now this is meant to be insecure right? But my question is.... what exactly can go wrong with this configuration? In what ways is it insecure?

Also... correct me if I'm wrong but do:

- Web server permissions: only affect what scripts can run locally etc... and

- User / file level permissions: Protect against anonomous access changes from the net?

VPN- Permissions On /dev/net/tun

Jul 4, 2007

I have installed openvpn on the machine but i am having issues. I had to create /dev/net/tun manually and get permission errors on the device. I installed the openvpn rpm from [url].

on service startup i get the following log

Jul 4 22:03:09 gizmo openvpn[9517]: Note: Cannot open TUN/TAP dev /dev/net/tun: Permission denied (errno=13)
Jul 4 22:03:09 gizmo openvpn[9517]: Note: Attempting fallback to kernel 2.2 TUN/TAP interface
Jul 4 22:03:09 gizmo openvpn[9517]: Cannot allocate TUN/TAP dev dynamically
Jul 4 22:03:09 gizmo openvpn[9517]: Exiting

i installed from an rpm package on my cent0s 4 virtual machine, i followed the tutorial here, but to summarise after installing:

yum install openvpn -y
#Now check that it works
service openvpn start
#service fails - reason permission error on /dev/net/tun

running ifconfig i do not get a TUN/TAP device listed, im guessing as i haave never used vps before but i presume if all was working well i would get an additional interface listed alongside vnet0?

i have asked my vps provider to check i have TUN access, however in the meantime i would like to check there is nothing fishy with my setup?

Ftp Permissions

Jul 24, 2007

Running LAMP, CentOS and webmin.

I've created a user and group for FTPing to a new domain. Problem is that when using Filezilla I get 'critical transfer error' after uploading files.

I have no problem with doing uploads as root, so this would appear to be permission problems.

So my question is, what do I need to do with the ftp user / or group in order to give appropriate permissions to place files under the public_html directory? Either through SSH or via Webmin...
