Chmod 777 Vs 755

Jul 3, 2007

I've just moved from a reseller account with ResellerZoom, so a VPS with SolarVPS.

When I was with RZ all my scripts could write to folder with the 755 permissions. On the vps I have to alter the folder I want the script to write to to be 777.

Which the is best and most secure?

I think I understand that if a folder is 777 then anyone on the server can write to that folder. So I assume some sort of thing that stops users being able to access folders outside of their own folders is needed? is that right?

I have a server running php 5.2.4 with CGI as Server API and suexec, but I cant create dirs in php with chmod 755. When I use mkdir("/home/user/public_html/$dirname", 0755); it creates the dir with chmod 744. Why?

I can change later this chmod to 755 in php with the chmod function. But why my server doesnt allow the directory to be created as 755? Where can I configure it?

Chmod Choices With Php Writing To A File

Aug 31, 2008

My account has been hacked with every index.php page defaced. I've cleaned up and my shared wehost is pointing at me saying there shouldn't be any 777 permissions for any files in there.

I used 777 to allow php to add records in a txt file and in an xml file.
Is there a better / more secure chmod code I can use?

Those are the only two instances where I need php to write to a file and those files shouldn't be served to anyone, I do not want anyone to be able to access them.

How can I secure them while letting php write in them?

PHP: Uploading As Apache User, And Chmod 600

Aug 12, 2007

I've recently moved to a new server in which I don't have root, so bare with me.

For some reason when I upload a file with 'move_uploaded_file($tmpName,$new_filename)', it seems to work fine - but when I check it, try to download it (http or ftp), or change the permission - I can't, because its set to 600 for some odd reason, and owned by the user Apache is setup on.

How To CHMOD? Sever Security Best Practices

Jan 3, 2007

I have my web server hacked several times and I am beating my head against the wall trying to find the problem(s).

Way back when my sites have been defaced and CHMODing my *.html files to 744 seemed to have done the trick

Now someone has put a phishing site somehow, which by the way I'm not able to remove still, I can't help but to think that I may have more CHMODing to do, I have recursevly set my site to 755, shoud this do the trick? I know I need to chmod .htaccess and alike files to 644, but what about...imagesCGI/PHP?cssetc?

What other steps can I take to secure this thing?

it's a shared host, limited access, but I do have SHELL.

Cannot Perform 'chmod' On FTP Client Software Interface

Apr 14, 2009

I got a VPS with Linode and I have installed CentOS 5.2 32-bit, Apache, MySQL and ProFTPd. The server itself runs very OK, however, I have issues with running 'chmod' on the user interface with either FileZilla or CuteFTP pro.

Whenever I try to chmod 777 on a directory, I got this error on the FTP client interface:


Command:SITE CHMOD 777 includes
Response:550 CHMOD 777 includes: No such file or directory

Why no such file or directory? weird. It's just on the server though. The FTP user is the owner/group of the directory I try to chmod to.

But I am able to run chmod on Putty.

Auto CHMOD Script Running In The Background

Jul 21, 2009

I am attempting to setup a script which will automatically append the proper file permissions [posix & acl's] to any new files on certain folders that I specify.

Someone Recommended

find /Users/Kevin/Desktop/TRANSFER -type f -exec chmod 777 {} ;

This only seems to run once and when new files put in I have to have the script run every so often as a cronjob, I really just want to have a script to change the permissions of files going into a folder.

For example, to disable a particular perl script running on my system on over 100 accounts in the /cgi-bin/file.cgi I want to chmod the file on every account that it comes up on that /cgi-bin/file.cgi needs to be chmod'd to 0.

Anyone know how to do this thru ssh or another method?

How NOT To Require CHMOD 755 Permissions To Create, Write And Delete Files On Linux

Dec 30, 2008

On my previous server and on some other hosts, I was able to write to files (for example with PHP) without having to chmod the files first.

Now I cannot, and files are required to be chmoded properly so I can write to them.

I cannot even touch() a file with PHP.

Is there any way to have this permissions removed?

I don't want to chmod the all thing, all I want is to change the configurations so I can fwrite() or file_put_contents() normally.

I's a dedicated un-managed server, so basically any advanced configurations can be done.

Shell Allow.

May 10, 2007

I have spare dedicated machine.

I want to allow user to run few processes on machine (debian etch).

I configurated limits at /etc/security/limits.conf for group "shell".

When I attached user to group shell, limits work well, but he still can look
everywhere on system. (he can do cat /home/somefile.txt, even owned by root).

Is there any method, software to limit user to acces only their home directories?
