Question file rights


Hi,

my problem is about file rights (at least i guess it is). Php file creates an .txt file and attempts to write text by fputs function. There is no problem with creating file but php file can't write in the file which it already created. Php file's file owner is same with .txt file but group was different. So I changed php's group and also change file rights to 777 to be sure it's going to work but it didn't.

Note: chmod doesn't work for me and fopen works with "a+"

Sorry about my english.Any help is appreciated,

Thanks.

1. which distro are you running
Code:
uname -a
 
cat /etc/*release*
check ownerships & perms of the dir and the file
Code:
ls -l 

# if system uses Selinux; see qn 1
ls -lZ
3. who is the php running as; presumably as the webserver user eg one of httpd/apache/www etc

Hi again,

Thank you chrism01 for reminding me who executes output file first and who attempts to write file externally and also teaching me uname -a [COLOR="Silver"]
