How to make Folder/file writable other than /var folder in Linux based router


Hi,

I am working on Linux based router which runs Boa webserver.

Currently i am able add/delete files under /var folder.

other folders(/home,/lib,/proc etc..) are read only.

i need to make a folder under /home writable so that i can add files through Server if any changes are made.


i have tried chmod,chown , but didnt work out

i tried using mount

~$mount --bind /home/httpd/web/temp /var

i was able to mount temp files under /var folder but it is still in read only mode.i couldnt edit any file in temp

my requirement is ,i have few (.asp ) files inside temp folder which may change in future,

suppose if this folder is writable i could upload edited files using ftp server(rather than uploading entire image into router).

Please pour in your suggestions.

I have access to my Toolchain,SDK,bootloader.


Thanks in Advance,

Satish

Closing thread due to duplicate. Will leave other zero-read thread open to get maximum exposure.
