File permissions for web-based app [Solved!]


I installed Vtiger and I need to set it up. I'd like to set permissions so that when I access it on the local machine I have full permissions to modify files, but anyone getting in on the intranet cannot. Is this possible? Can I make a group for local Apache users or something like that? It's Debian Etch, if that matters.

You can do this several ways. You can make the files 775 so that the owner and anyone in the group has full access to them but everyone else can only read and execute. Then just make sure that you are in the group.

Thanks... I tried setting the user as owner and then giving him full permissions on all the vtiger files, but I still can't modify the files through the web interface. I don't know whether the problem is that it doesn't recognize that someone coming in through 127.0.0.1 is the user or if it's something else. Do I need to create and/or set permissions for a group also?

OK, I figured it out. I had to set the user in httpd.conf. After I did that and stopped/started Apache, I was able to run the vtiger configuration on the local browser.
