User Permissions and PHP with Plesk

    I have an application that creates files within a domain automatically (using PHP). Because Apache is being run by the user apache, these files are being created user:group apache:apache.

    That is fine, except when it comes to modifying these files, I cannot do so via the ftp user (mcartcarts) because it does not have permissions to.

    I have gone so far as to add that user to the apache group, but alas, no luck. Even if the file has rwxrw-rw- permissions, the mcartcarts user cannot SEE or WRITE the file.

    I am told that this is due to the suexec that php/apache runs with from plesk - but surely there must be a way around this? is there? it would be an EXTREME pain to have to chown the files EVERY time I want to edit them....

    Running Plesk Reloaded 7.5.1 on Fedora

    Thanks for any info that you can provide...

    Since no-one is able to help here - can you suggest a place to get help from? I have already paid for Plesk, so I am not thrilled about paying for support from them.... is there a forum that they monitor? Is there some better resource for finding the answer this question?

    This forum is not meant to support customers by means of SW-Soft staff. Please read the front page.

    The online support form is located at https://register.sw-soft.com/support/form.php. If your control panel is working you can also login to the that, click on the "Server" section then the "Support" button. This will auto-fill most the info SW-Soft needs(Key#, OS, etc) when assisting you.

    As far as paying for their support, if the problem is within their software they won't charge you(or shouldn't anyways).
