I have apache 2.0.xx running fine with PHP and SQL. But I want to set file permissions. when i try to by FTp, it says this SErver doesn't allow setting file permissions. I tri4ed looking in the http.conf for apache but nothing was stated abotu file permissions.

Any help?

a) what platform are we talking about

b) apache never sets file permissions. if anything, you have to look into your FTP daemon.
Now, if you can't figure it out, we'll need to know what ftpd you're using.

Can you set file permissions on windows XP? I don't think it allows you the same level of control as a *nix box. And it might also depend on what file system you are using. FAT32 doesn't allow the same control as NTFS (both options in XP I think)

I'm pretty sure this is an OS issue, not one with your ftp applications

yes, this has nothing to do with FTP.
An ftp client could only set unix file permissions... windows permisions are much more complex (and flexible) than their historical unix counter part.

So why would you need to set those permissions in the first place? Under what user's apache running? What XP are we talking about? Home version? Professional one? FAT or NTFS?
(if you don't know, right click on the drive and look)

its WIn XP Pro
and im hosting a webserver from it.

Perhaps should I purchase WIn 2003 .NET OS??
would that allow file permissions to be set?

Marf, in order to be able to set file permissions under Windows OS, you need to format your disks using NTFS file system. On disks that are NTFS formatted, simply go to file / folder properties and then set appropriate permissions in the security tab...

im having exact the same problem.

im running apache 2.0 php 4 on a winxp NTFS machine.

file permission for my .txt is C(change) for everyone.

it seems to work in simple php scripts, but when i play with more complex guestbook stuff and php, i cant write to a text file.

my scripts definitly work on another OS server i tested.

its my configuration either with apache, php, or WINXP.


thanx for any suggestions and sorry for this enourmous thread.
