Installing PHP messageboards and CMSes

    Ok, I never had any trouble with cPanel on this one and I am at the point right now that if Plesk had a face I would punch it.


    Anyway, on any of the sites I have added with Plesk I have a ton of trouble installing phpBB, joomla, wordpress. Basicly any kind of PHP content management system. It has to do with the file permissions, I got joomla to install by chmod 0777 on every file in my httpdocs folder.

    There has got to be an easier way to do this though, I never had any trouble installing these programs when I was using cPanel. With Plesk everything is uploaded as 0644. And I guess that is the problem, what can I do to make installation of these types of things easier for me and others using my server.

    The problem can be that these application should be executed from the owner of domain where they are installed.
    with Plesk every domain application is executed from "apache", that's why the permissions should be 777 so apache could serve the pages owned by a different user.
    There is a module called suPHP, its installation should fix this problem. But the issue is that suPHP doesn't come with Plesk by default. I didn't have any experience with its installation with Plesk, probably somebody has, try to search in the net, see the forum threads:

    As far as I know suPHP should be included in Plesk 9, however not sure when exactly.

    It has to be more easier than that

    What other solution might work to solve this problem ? Would changing the owner of the folders to apache solve this issue ?

    Thanks in advance.
