I own a dedicated server and have installed plesk on it. With the domain, plesk creates an FTP account to use for that domain. When you use that user/pass it only allows access to the
directory, which is fine.
Now the problem is that the account has very limited permissions. It didn't let me write to any of the folders unless I chmodded them to '777', and now doesn't let me overwrite any files unless I login as root and chmod the individual files to '777'. How can I set this accounts permissions to allow full writing, and reading for everything it has access to? I don't want everything to have full permissions for obvious reasons.
My Pink Floyd website has a photo section of rare concert pictures that our members upload. We have about 3,000 of these pictures, that our members upload via an FTP server that is hosted on a simple cPanel web hosting account. Someone logged into the account and not only deleted all the pictures, but uploaded obscene pictures and index.html files to some really nasty stuff.
We delete all the obscene stuff, but before we re-upload all the pictures I need to know...
On a cPanel account is there a way to have the FTP User only able to upload files and not edit/delete/change? Somehow we can edit their permission?
I asked HostGator about this and the ChatTech said this cannot be done, and I was a bit surprised. I could easily do this on my own server, but i'm not sure where to start at the user level.
I want to grant different access rights for certain folders to a large group of users of my apache WebDav server.There are access control lists for each folder on the server. Based on the rights in the access control lists the users should only have access to the folders listed in the ACL lists.In addition to that some users have only "read", some also "write" rights for the folders.How can I set up the described access rights on my WebDav server?
In moving my site to Drupal, I have had it on a "Beta" account on the same server. I need to move the DB to the "Live" site. How do I re-assign it using the master PHPMyAdmin through WHM to change the owner of the DB from "Beta site" to "Live site"?
I noticed there is always notification to user account mail with account info but on all my servers on different networks notification comes only to server mail.How do i enable that?Do i need to install tweak to whm/cpanel?
just buy a vps, all fine, but can not move or delete file by ftp after file uploaded by ftp and unzip by ssh. support say i need to use chown to change user to ftp user. but there is not ftp user on ssh when chown /dirctory ftpuser
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.
Yesterday I upgrade to cPanel 11... I can perfectly login using WHM, but one of our customers can login using root, this is the error:
The server was configured to not permit you access to the specified resource. If you believe this is in error or inadvertent, please contact the system administrator and ask them to update the host access files.
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.
