shoudl the folders under web belong to? or doesnt it matter as long as the webserver can read/write to that dir.

Some of the sites i have read say to make most folders under webroot (htdocs - or where ever) belong to www:www and to make the folders chmod 400 or any dir it will need to write to at 700.

Or doesnt it matter? at the moment they are under carpo:group and are 555 and 777 otherwise web server gives me 403 - which i suppose is right as it doesnt have rights to read the files.

Main thing is which is more the more secure user to run it under ?

edit: also i know under apache when using php-cgi you need to add cgi.fix_pathinfo=1 to php.ini - but is this required if using lighttpd ?

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
