Permissions on Windows

Posted 26 April 2014 - 08:54 PM

I'm having some trouble with users being able to upload files on my windows web server. I assume this is a permission issue, since I can upload them fine locally. I've been using PHP's chmod() and fileperms() functions, but I don't know how well I can trust their results since I'm not running a Linux system.

I can try to chmod the directory to "0666" with no error, but running fileperms() immediately after gives me "0555". I've set the permissions manually through the explorer to allow all from everyone, which I assume is the Windows equivalent of "0777", but that seems to get no result either. Can someone tell me how to make this work?

Edit: Disregard, I suck phalluses. I had the folder set to read-only.

666 on Linux is read & write. 555 on Linux is read & execute. You need to set a directory to execute in order to enter into it. I would assume that's why it gets re-set.

All that aside, I would assume that Apache logs the error. What do the logs say?

Oops, didn't read this. Glad you figured it out :)
