need to manually update premissions apache


Hi
I have a directory in the /var/www folder. I have access to this directory from my windows machine through samba.

Everytime i add new files to the folder where the webpage is locate i need to go to my centos server a type chmod -R 777 /var/www/name

It can't be right that i need to do this everytime i add new files to the folder??

If i dont run this command i can't access this files when I access the webpage throug a browser...

Any suggetions?

UPDATE: I think It has something to do with the samba user, because if i create the files as root directly on the centos server i dont got the problem ... ?

Regards
Steffen

I am not sure on the fix,

The problem will be due to the apache user not being able to access the file due to permissions. Anyways it sounds like you are connecting directly into a branch of the root document for apache and that sounds potentially dangerous.

I think enforcing the ownership might be a possible solution...

If you enforced a security mask of 770 and placed apache and the samba user within the same group I believe this would fix the issue you are experiencing.

I don't know samba that well myself so I can't really give any more advice then that.

it gave apache access to var/www then said testing directory, when i got bored of waiting i refreshed and it said don't have permission.

So what could i be doing wrong.

Hi you can set create mask = 0777 on your samba config file per share. This will cause all the files you copy using samba to be created with the permission 777.
