Default Permissions 775

Nov 11, 2007

I was on a server (reseller account) that ran PHPSuexec and default permissions were 755/644 as they should be.

We moved to a new cPanel 11 server and default permissions are 775/664. This is the same on 4 different servers from 4 different hosting companies (all reseller accounts). Three are CentOS, one RedHat Enterprise.

I entered a support ticket for one company and they said the permissions were not right and supposedly fixed it (I have left that company since then so I can't check).

The other hosting companies say their umasks are right and would not change it.

Apparently the apache installation defaults to these permissions which, security wise, seems kinda strange.

Can anyone shed some light on whether or not this is secure and does this mean I'm going to have change permissions evertime I upload files to install shopping carts, billing software etc.? (It's not hard it's just stupid to have to).

Should my hosts change apache system umask (022) to make permissions default to 755/644?

Plesk 11.x / Windows :: Default Permissions For Domains

Mar 31, 2014

I've installed the Plesk Panel onto a windows 2008 server. It's all good, web sites are flowing and I'm really happy with the software. The issue I'm having is a customer has an asp site with an access database. After I uploaded their site, they couldn't write to the database, so I had to manually go and set the permission on the database for the "Plesk IIS Anonymous Account (IUSR_xxx)" user to have modify access on the file.

So my question is this, how can I set up the default hosting account to already allow this and so I don't have to go an waste time tweaking the folders manually trying to find the right permissions?

Also, why is it the Plesk IIS Anonymous account that needed to have it's permissions tweaked and not the "Default Plesk application pool user (IWAM_plesk(default))" which is the user who's configured on the application pool in IIS? I can't see where the Plesk IIS Anon user is being used.

Plesk 12.x / Linux :: 12.0.18 - How To Set Permissions To 770 By Default When Create Vhost

Oct 5, 2014

When a customer use the wordpress auto installation tool, all work ok.

But, when the customer try to install wordpress manually (Uploading by FTP), it returns different permissions errors.

Example: "wp-config.php" cant write .

I compared the permissions of both vhosts (WP-Auto-install and WP-Manually-Install), and have totally different permissions.

WP-Auto-installed : /httpdocs = 770
WP-Manually : /httpdocs = 750

How I can set permissions to 770 by default when create a vhost? to avoid the customer having to do it manually.

Plesk 11.x / Linux :: Event Handler To Change Default Permissions Of Skeleton Site

Mar 1, 2015

I am running Plesk 11.5.30 on CentOS and trying to change the default permissions of the /httpdocs folder and the skeleton site that is in .skel/0/httpdocs that appears when a domain is created. I have failed to find the event that I need to use to trigger the command.

chmod -R g+rwx "/var/www/vhosts/${NEW_DOMAIN_NAME}/httpdocs"‚Äč

Some research suggested using the 'physical hosting created' but there is no option for this in 11.5.30.

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...

FTP Permissions

May 29, 2007

I have some folders and files which simply won't let me upload, rewrite, rename, change permissions etc. Any action I try to perform on them simply gives me an error such as

550 Could not change perms on /public_html/foldername: Operation not permitted

The current permissions seem fine (755) and cpanel's file manager isn't having any luck either.

It's for a zen-cart site

Machine is running Cent OS with the following;

cPanel Version 11.2.17-CURRENT
cPanel Build 12566
Theme x3
Apache version 1.3.37 (Unix)
PHP version 4.4.6
MySQL version 4.1.22-standard

Correct Permissions To Use

Aug 27, 2009

I am in the process of setting up my server and have come to the stage where I am uploading my actual website scripts and files. I am a little confused however as to what permissions and file/directory ownership my website files should be set to.

My web root is set to 755 (rwx/r-x/r-x) with Owner as root, and Group as root. All files within the web root are set to 744 (rwx/r--/r--) with the owner and group the same as the web root. The permissions set allow php scripts to function but I am not sure if the group should be set to root on all these files, is this correct?

My site users have no ftp access if that makes any difference to ownership.

Crontab Permissions

Mar 18, 2008

In trying to setup a cronjob on a new server I notice that cPanel tells me that usr/bin/crontab permissions are wrong and that they need to be changed to 4755.

When I log in to the server with WinSCP and attempt to change the permissions it just doesn't do it ... it looks like it's doing it, no errors, but it just leaves it the same!

I'm able to connect to it fine (in multiple client (dreamweaver, cadaver)), however, when I try to upload, I'm not able to. Apache has permissions for that directory and for the lock file. However, I get a 403 Permission Denied error.

Cannot Change Permissions

Feb 6, 2007

I'm using wsftp checking permissions in in this directory:

through wsftp i saw chmod 755 but when i try to delete this directory appears with 550 and i can't delete it

So i used File Manager tool in Cpanel, selected directory to erase it, seems like was done, but when i refresh page the directory it's still there, so i try to change permissions because apparently it has 755 but i can't do anything with it, so when i click button to change permission i got an error message [a fatal error or timeout occurred while processing this directive]

Then i go trough wsftp to check again and this directory it's still there

Permissions With An Account

May 24, 2007

This is what you get when you go to this one site on the server in your browser:

You don't have permission to access / on this server.

Additionally, a 403 Forbidden error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.

This is a site in a reseller's account. The reseller had suspended it for non-payment. The account owner paid their fees, and the reseller unsuspended it. But now the site can't be reached.

I chowned and chmodded the account, but that didn't fix it.

Folder Permissions Set To 0

Jan 16, 2007

I just ran into a very odd problem with my server. I was checking out my banner links on other sites when I realized none of them were displaying. I quickly checked the folder I keep the image in and I got a forbidden access warning. I checked the folder from ftp and it said the permissions were set to 0, instead of 755 like they should be

I can't move, delete, view, or alter the folder in any way.

No Permissions To Edit Css

Jun 26, 2007

I uploaded a joomla template and now need to edit the css file. But it says it is unwritable. Earlier, I had a problem editing an image. My host said, "Since these files were created the webserver, you didnt have ownership to change these files."

So perhaps the same happened with the css file? What do you think?

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?
