cgi permissions cgi permissions codemut (Programmer) (OP) 9 Oct 12 12:27 Without correct permissions for files created by CGI scripts, a script will fail. So, how to set permissions automatically (on the fly) when generating CGI files with new or unique names? By the way, the cgi code is compiled/binary, so no mod_perl, etc. RE: cgi permissions codemut (Programmer) (OP) 9 Oct 12 12:32 Also, this CGI is in a Linux / Apache system. RE: cgi permissions raggmopp (MIS) 23 Feb 13 23:32 I believe the files that are created have owner of apache:apache with 755 perms, I think. One thing you might be able to do, set the perms on the parent directory to rwxrws--x Files and subdirs below the parent will inherit the parent's perms. Then you can put apache into the same group that the parent directory is a member of. So now group members can write - it doesn't have to be the owner to write to the file.
