    I get the following error in the Backup Utility page. I just upgraded to 7.5.2 on FreeBSD 4.9. Any ideas?


    "ERROR
    DumpsList::init() failed: filemng failed: filemng: opendir failed: Permission denied
    0: /usr/local/psa/admin/htdocs/domains/backup/dumps_list.php:248 psaerror(string "DumpsList::init() failed: filemng failed: filemng: opendir failed: Permission denied")"

    Hello quabbo,

    "opendir failed: Permission denied"

    What are the permissons of the directory:
    /usr/local/psa/var/dumps
    ??

    Cheers.

    Thats the track I was on too...

    /usr/local/psa/var has these permissions...

    drwxr-xr-x 8 psaadm psaadm 1024 Feb 3 05:14 dumps

    I've noticed some major permissions errors throughout the server. One of my users is Gravatar. Why should gravatar be the owner of files in the /usr/local/psa/admin/htdocs directory?

    drwxr-xr-x 5 gravatar 4001 512 Feb 1 23:17 modules

    drwxr-xr-x 24 gravatar 4001 1024 Feb 3 01:43 .
    drwxr-xr-x 19 gravatar 4001 512 Feb 1 23:17 ..

    I've also noticed that SOME things are root:wheel, and some things are root:psaadm... before the upgrade, weren't they something like psaadm:psaadm ?

    I'm sure that this is my problem, but I'm not sure what they should be properly set to.

    I ran this on the /usr/local/psa/var/dumps/ directory... and it seems to have fixed the problem

    chown psaadm:psaadm *


    -----
    I still think that the fact that Gravatar is owning some files in the PSA admin htdocs directory is a problem. Should I chwon all those files psaadm:psaadm as well? What permissions should they have?

    Can someone on FreeBSD 4.9 with 7.5.2 please email me a copy of ls -la at your /usr/local/psa/admin/ and /usr/local/psa/admin/htdocs directories?

    Hello quabbo,

    I would be willing to bet that
    gravatar is user id: 10007
    Have asked about this in the past.

    And, I do belive, is should be psaadm:psaadm, as
    you did.

    Cheers.
