    Default Sorting file permissions.. failed badly


    Okay I need some help to get out of this mess.. I tried a million
    different ways to fix my file permissions.
    I'll just describe what I need as I'm quite sure that whatever I did to
    the directory is wrong in many ways... and I'm unable to fix it.

    I got a */srv/www/htdocs/* dir on which I need (-me or anyone else via
    samba as a guest-) user 'nobody' to have full rights and the user/group
    www / wwwrun to have read permissions. (unless I chmod the map to 777,
    on for example one that's used to contain thumbnails created trough a
    php script).

    What I got is.. not sure, even after chmodding the entire htdocs map
    777 I got eclipse spewing errors at me like
    checkout http://192.168.1.100/kdrepos/RST -r HEAD --depth=infinity
    --force
    svn: Cannot write to
    '/home/Pascal/Shared/www/RST/.svn/tmp/text-base/gallerij.php.svn-base':
    /home/Pascal/Shared/www/RST/.svn/tmp/text-base/gallerij.php.svn-base
    (Permission denied)
    svn: Cannot write to
    '/home/Pascal/Shared/www/RST/.svn/tmp/text-base/gallerij.php.svn-base':
    /home/Pascal/Shared/www/RST/.svn/tmp/text-base/gallerij.php.svn-base
    (Permission denied)

    -My apogies for the forum spam as this seems to be like the 5th post
    related to me being a nub.-

    I believe PHP has an extra layer of protection. There is a path list
    that tells PHP which directories it is allowed to write to. I think it's
    the setting open_basedir, look at the PHP docs for this. It can be set
    in /etc/php5/apache2/php.ini or on a per Apache virtual host using the
    php_admin_value option.

    it worked before with chmod 777 on a dir( Oh dear lord I wish I had put
    my www on a different mountpoint as well so it would have survived the
    11.1 upgrade.. wouldn't be having problems now then )
    And I remember doing this over ftp for gallery scripts and content
    management systems with autosetups writing the config file.

    Don't forget that the whole path from / must give enough permissions for
    the apache user. In practice this means directories on the path must
    have the x bit on.

    It's useful to test access as the target user. You can do this with su
    - wwwrun then you get a shell for wwwrun. You may have to temporarily
    give wwwrun a valid shell in /etc/passwd first. Don't forget to set it
    back after testing.

    Seems like a -the whole world against me- case in the end..

    - NFS was quitting on me cause my router (which is too blame for many
    of my network related problems) couldn't handle an SVN import on this
    dir while importing all my songs in Amarok2 (over NFS as well). Which
    resulted in me not being able to connect to the server or something..
    - Eclipse identified itself as something not guest if I tried it via
    the SMB mount.
    - Some other things I can't remember cause it was late.
    In the end I figured out I actually had things set up properly but
    there were other causes (such as the above) getting in my way :<

    Look at the bright side, you learnt lots of other things on the side.

    A tip for the future. Which will help with upgrades. Change the wwwroot
    to /home/Pascal/public_html in Yast > network services > http server.
    That way it's easier to manage the permissions and will be saved after
    an upgrade if you keep /home.
    I do this and also make backups of /etc/php5 and /etc/appache2 that way
    i can restore the settings
