i am more a linux guy than windows, but recently i have to switch to windows.
In my FTP program I logged in one of my domains and tried to edit file permissions for a folder but in my windows filezilla server it game me 504 command not implemented for that parameter error message.
I read a little and learned that windows dos not support posix.
How can a change the file permissions on windows machine?
my question is relating to a "DJ Panel" that I am making. I am looking into various file permissions and was wondering if all PHP files that are part of the DJ Panel have file permissions of 0666 will that pose any kind of security threat (make life easier for hackers) or do you see any downside to doing this?
I'm on a shared FreeBSD server, running Apache with Drupal, and vBulletin.
I had to create a local php.ini file in my public_html folder for Drupal, and another in my forum folder for vBulletin. Now my question is, what should I set the permissions of these files to? Also, what should I set .htaccess permissions to as well?
I'd like to keep them invisible to the public. But, I don't want any problems with Drupal, or vBulletin ether.
I'm used to using Linux and I know how permissions work on a desktop. I just don't know what they do when used on a server. I'm guessing 640, but I'd like to make sure before I change anything.
I have setup an ftp user which can upload files to /home/ftp/upload and obviously it assigns the ftp user as the owner when it uploads. Now, I want PHP to be able to rename those files, but getting a permission denied, presumably because apache aint the owner or doesnt have permission to do that, so how do I grant it the right permission(s)?
I am planning to use CGI for my web installations and there appears to be a whole lot of conflicting info about setting file permissions in the user's folder.
What are the permissions actually required for reading and writing into the web users directory?
A lot of them say 755, but that doesn't make sense as it gives any user read and write permissions to the whole web directory tree.
Other than the initial index .php, .cgi or some other files that need to be ready by the webserver process shouldn't every other file be 700 or 600 as every subsequent file access is done under the control of the cgi program?
Unless a file is to be served directly by the web server process and is not in a ScriptAlias directory or is not marked as a CGI shouldn't the permissions on that file be 600 or 700?
I'd also like to know if there are some guides as to how the CGI security issues operate.
I am doing some work on a server and when I create a new folder (using WinSCP) it defaults the folder permissions to 775 and file permissions to 664. Besides causing possible problems with the applications I'm installing, isn't this a bit of a security risk?
Also, if I upload a tar and untar on the server it sets the same 775/664 permissions.
a way to preserve folder/file permissions in a windows environment. We are copying files from one drive to another on one of our servers. It's crucial to preserve the permissions - but i've done some research and can't find any way to get this done...
Anybody familiar with any methods on how to approach this? We're running windows 2003 server.
I just purchased my first hosting package in 10 years. Things have changed quite a bit and I'm unsure about some of the permissions settings. My new account is with Host Gator.
I could really use some help.
I'm going to use WordPress for the first time. I'd like to harden down my Linux server on Host Gator as much as possible. I'd also like to harden the WordPress permissions as much as possible.
I've read a fair amount about and have a little experience in setting read, write, and execute permissions plus some other security experience. My main concerns are to strike the balance between hardening down enough without making it so WordPress can't access whatever it needs to access.
I also have "Hot Linking" to consider. Not sure if that will make it difficult for WordPress to do it's thing.
I have placed a Content Management System on an Apache server using Cpanel and when I try to install I get messages about folders and files needing permission changes, then after installation some modules won't work because of wrong permissions. The solution to make everything work is to set all folders and files to 0777 but then that would just open up to insecurity. Also I can't set files to 0444 using an FTP client. It can only be done via Cpanel's file manager.
I install the same CMS on another hosting service with the same Apache/Cpanel config and it does not require any CHMOD. The app installs without errors and functions correctly with folders at 0755 and files at 0644.
It seems most shared hosting nowadays work as the latter statement so what could be the cause why the other hosting server require all the permission changes?
Until recently i had never used a Linux server, as i used to have a windows server. I now have a Linux VPS
I am now at my wits end with file permission problems
I use Joomla a lot for my websites, and i also develop and program many modules and components for it, but at the moment every time i upload a module (which is a zip file with php files that is put onto the server in the right place via php) it sets the ownership to "nobody" rather than the username so i cant access it via ftp, as it says you don't have permission or the file may not exist.
Is there anyway the server can be set so it will by default set the file to have an owner name that will allow ftp access to it without me having to learn SSH Putty (which is all i have done today) or contacting my hosting company every time?
I am spending more of my time with these permission problems than doing my work, it driving me barmy!
Whenever I setup a new FTP user in Plesk and then configure my FTP client with exactly the same username and password and transfer files and folders onto the server then the file permissions allocated are incorrect. Folders get allocated a permission of 700 and files a permission of 600, whereas I want all folders to have a permission of 755 and files a permission of 644. How can I change my setup so that files and folders get the permissions I want ?
I have a problem where every folder I ftp onto the server gets given a 700 permission and every file gets a Zero permission. Most of the sites I am adding to this server will be WordPress sites and most of the folders I want to have a permission of 755 and for the files a permission of 644 so my question is how do I change the settings so that any new files ftp'd onto the server get the permission 755 and files get the permission of 644 ?
Ok, new to Plesk, trying to move from ispconfig. So I have Plesk 12 running on Centos 6 64bit in a VPS. I figured out how to upgrade PHP and now I have installed my first website. The website is joomla based but I am getting the below error when installing components:
Warning Copy failed.
JInstaller: :Install: Failed to copy file /var/www/vhosts/virtual-sim-racing.com/httpdocs/home/tmp/install_55081e65af5fe/pkg_kunena.xml to /var/www/vhosts/virtual-sim-racing.com/httpdocs/home/administrator/manifests/packages/pkg_kunena.xml
Package Install: Could not copy setup file.
This suggest to me a permissions issue - but what to do with it. I have checked all of the relevant Joomla folder permissions and they are all showing as writeable, so it looks like something outside of that?
I don't want to have to stick with ispconfig much longer ...
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.
I have a Plesk Panel v11.5.30 installed into a Windows Server 2012. Whenever the panel is updated, the filesystem permissions are modified. Group psacln cannot access to several folders like C:Program files, C:Program files (x86), etc. Plesk users connected via Remote Desktop cannot run programs like Internet Explorer or so. Some web apps use Crystal Reports to build reports, and this doesn't work either.
Why does the upgrade process restrict access to these folders? It is possible to modify default permissions applied after panel upgrades?
I'm SURE this is me being stupid but I cannot find where to change folder permissions in the new Plesk interface?
I go to the file manager but all I have are the basic file/folder operations (Create, Delete, Upload File, etc) - I can't find anywhere to change permissions on the folders to give the MYSERVER_IUSR permission, etc.
I have been contracted to resolve an issue for a Plesk installation. This installation in particular is receiving the 'no input file specified' error when attempting to access Horde webmail, and I believe it is because:
IIS is in FastCGI mode (as expected) Permissions are not allowing php to execute out of the expected path.
PHP is working for all other domains (there are multiple) on this account, it is just the horde PHP that is not functional.
I have tried contacting Skype support but received no answer.
I have tried running the commands --fix-webmail that were suggested in other threads, but they have no effect.
