Changing File Permission
i've set all folders,sub folder and files under this folder to be 777 since it is a folder for my users to upload attachments~

however this is the problem. users all failed to upload because the permission of the new folder created by apache for the users to store their attachment are set to 755, which i wanted them to be 777. (those 777 folders were from old server.)

if u take a look at the pic attached , you know what i meant. does anyone have any idea of how i can change the permission for this whole foder to be 777 even with folder created by apache?

i tried chmod -r 777 attachment, but it says operation not permitted @@

SFTP - Permission Denied
I just got a barebone server. Installed apache2, php5, mysql,phpmyadmin.

I only have SSH access to the server. I wish to use CoreFTP to transfer some webpage files to /var/www folder. I can login the server using CoreFTP's SSH/SFTP and it displays all the files and directories, but I do not have the permission to write.

My question is, how do I give myself permission to write? Here is the id of my user:

Forbidden /You Don't Have Permission To Access
In my VPS:

I have given to one of my clients a reseller, sometimes, it shows an error, when he enters his Forum:


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

Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.

The weird thing is, when that error comes, will appear on all other forums in the same time in his reseller!

I have tried to use some solutions such as :

1- Create .htaccess file and add the following code
<IfModule mod_security.c>
SecFilterEngine Off
SecFilterScanPOST Off

2- I increase MaxSpareServers in httpd.conf.

Hosting Games, Without Permission
I was hoping this was the best place to post this...

I own a website for free online game and I really need an answer for this.

Is it illegal to take a game that people shared on newgrounds, or some other "Free

Online Games" website? I'm not making any money off the game, there is no affiliate, nothing. I'm just adding it to my website for more people to play.

It's like Promoting their game, and I don't take any credit for it whatsoever.

Is that illegal to do with out any permission?

Permission To Link To Someone's Page
I was wondering: say I have a website where users discuss different articles and when a user wants to discuss a specific article, he/she will be able to link to that article and then say what they have to say.

Certainly, copying and pasting would violate the site's copyright but simply including a little link sounds like a legal alternative. Is it really? Or, technically that would still require me as the webmaster, or the user who posted it to request permission just for linking?

I know nobody would care because it only gives more traffic to the site but legally, would permission be needed?

Permission On Windows 2003
I noticed very strange file permission behaviour, which not always intherid child permission from parent. Detailed problem description is below.

I have "c:File" directory with IUSR permission.

If I run one .NET application(exe) from Administrator account and try to create new file with that application in c:File directory, the newly created file with that application do not has IUSR permission.

If I run notepad and save txt file into that directory, it has IUSR permission.

Can anyone explain what is going on? Why file created with first .NET aplication do not inherit permission from folder?

File Permission On FreeBSD
I have problem with a file permission on FreeBSD.

The permission of that file is 0000, so I tried to change that
permission using chmod command. However, I got the following error:

chmod: file.php: Operation not permitted

I know that I have to check for file attributes. In redhat I used to
check that using lsattr command. However, I couldn't find it anywhere in FreeBSD.

Anyone here aware of an equivalent command that check file attributes?

Permission Denied Error
I made a copy of my forum's root folder using SSH command: cp -r forum forum123

Then I tried to update the new (forum123) folder with the latest files from vBulletin.

And it gave me a permission denied error. For test purpose, I went to the original folder and uploaded one of the new files there and it worked flawlessly.

Why am I not able to upload files to the copied folder? I've been doing this since like for ever, this is the first time I've encountered such an error.

Avenger Permission Denied
I installed Avenger on FreeBSD 6.2 as Anti-Spam and I'm not understand
some configuration.

1- Avenger as me to create a user 'avenger' in group 'wheel' for its program, but when starts asmtpd , it runs under user: root and group: wheel . What is the utility to create this user 'avenger' then?

2- When I run a Debug Mod, I obtain a permission denied error

myserver:/etc/mail># asmtpd --avenge
SMTP-test (6) <== 220 ESMTP
SMTP-test (6) ==> ehlo
SMTP-test (6) <==
SMTP-test (6) <== 250 PIPELINING

/etc/mail/aliases.db: Permission denied
/etc/mail/aliases.db: bad alias file
SMTP-test (6) <== 250 ok
+unknown (a11) === EOF

accepted by SMTP server:
250 ok

Ok so the error was coming from my "Other group" can't read . I have changed permission to following:

chmod r+o /etc/mail/virtusertable.db

and I obtain this:

myserver:/etc/mail># asmtpd --avenge
SMTP-test (6) <== 220 ESMTP
SMTP-test (6) ==> ehlo
SMTP-test (6) <==
SMTP-test (6) <== 250 PIPELINING
SMTP-test (6) ==> mail from:<>
SMTP-test (6) <== 250 ok
SMTP-test (6) ==> rcpt to:<>
asmtpd: loading /etc/avenger/domains
+unknown (a11) ==> return 250 ok
SMTP-test (6) <== 250 ok
+unknown (a11) === EOF

accepted by SMTP server:
250 ok

It could be a potential security problem if I left "Other" to read virtusertable.db . So my question is: Is there another way to fix this error without changing permission for Other to read virtusertable.db?

You Don't Have Permission To Access /phpmyadmin/ On This Server
Recently, i upgraded my WAMP from WampServer2.0f to WampServer2.0g.

I uninstalled WampServer2.0f and then only installed WampServer2.0g.

I can access [url] and i can see under my tools section that there is a link to phpMyadmin which points to [url]

I get the error: Forbidden - You don't have permission to access /phpmyadmin/ on this server whenever i try to access phpMyadmin.

Additional Info:

My WAMP icon is white.

I tried Restarting all services but nothing helped.

I have a folder called phpmyadmin3.1.3 which is located inside C:wampapps.

The version of MySQL on my localhost is 5.1.32 (How do i know this? I clicked on my WAMP icon, pointed to MySQL --> Version and it displayed a checked mark on 5.1.32).

Did some homework, and people say that there may be a problem with the phpmyadmin.conf file. It's located in my C:wampalias

Can that file be edited phpmyadmin.conf?

I havent tried uninstalling and reinstalling WAMP. I'll do that as a last resort (and i don't know if that will fix things).

Cpanel /home Permission Hardening
Since this got lost (google cache of thread discussion so far)
im reposting because i think it was an interesting discussion.

I'm setting up a cpanel server for the first time. I was wondering if i could harden the default cpanel permissions for the user folders in /home The idea is to prevent users viewing each others files. Please don't suggest the php open_basedir option as its not secure and doesn't work with cgi based file browsers.

Note I'm using suexec/suphp.

currently new cpanel users folders are created with
group and user ownership and the permissions 755

I was thinking if i changed this to 711 would this break anything?

Could i lock this down even more by changing the group ownership to "nobody" and thus have permissions 710.

Fopen Permission Denied On New Server
I'm migrating from shared hosting to a VPS. I have transferred my files right over, and permissions are all the same as they were on the old server.

The fopen scripts are giving me an error when trying to write to files.

failed to open stream: Permission denied

The permissions on the file are 644 and it can read from the file just fine. Giving the file world write permissions fixes the problem, but I don't want to do this for obvious reasons.

I think the reason this worked on the shared server had something to do with the apache user being defined differently but I'm honestly not sure. The php file executing the command is owned by the user that owns the document I'm trying to write to (in fact one user owns everything).

how I can fix this without giving world write permissions?

Document Root And File Permission
I am running a LAMP server, working to get everything configured and as secure as I can make it. I have been trying to decide weather to change the document root to a different directory, or if it would be better/worse or more/less secure to chown and chmod the current directory.

Any input would be helpful, I just don't want to overlook some small detail as this is my first time handling a server on my own.

Permission Errors On Server Account
I recently got my very own dedicated server, as in bought one and it is sitting in my desk right now.

I've installed Centos 4.4 (that's what my web server uses, so I just use it for continuity), connected it to my router.

I've gone through a lot of different steps and here's where I am right now:

Because I have a dynamic IP address, I use a free service to direct towards my server. [url]. It works just fine.

I also have to port forward port 80 to go to the server, instead of my laptop or the other desktop currently running off of our router.

I don't know how to set up a web account on the server, so I discovered UserDir. I enabled it in the httpd.conf file. But when I try to access it [url]I get a permissions error. I've made sure the directories are CHMOD'd correctly... so I don't know why I can't access it.

Joomla Install - Solve Directory Permission
I installed Joomla today, and it went smoothly except that under Help -> System Info in the Joomla admin panel, all "Directory Permissions" are "Unwritable."

I've read up on various solutions, such as installing suphp to take care of user permissions. But if I have my own Linux VPS and I am the only user (i.e. noone else has accounts on my VPS), what is the easiest way to fix this issue? Can I just CHMOD those directories to 777 without worrying about causing a security issue? Or is there a similarly easy solution for someone like me with very basic Linux knowledge?
