Hello, I am having trouble with one of my php scripts which needs to create/edit/delete different files within a website. The problem is when I upload the files via FTP they are all given a specifc "owner" and "group". However when the scripts are run by me browsing to them the scripts are run by "nobody" in which case it dosn't have the privllages to create/edit/delete files (or even chmod, or chown, the files). So is does anyone know how to run the script as a specific user?
Or maybe this can be set in the .htaccess file? Whenever abc.php runs it runs as "Someuser"?

If your files dont have permission to write to other files then you may need to make these file you want written to available to the public. However this does present a security risk if you are allowing anyone to write to those files. You can use the CHMOD 666 (the devils work ;)), as this will allow anyone to read or write to the file.
<edit> I knew there was someone asking about 666 a while ago...Iv just checked and it was you, so I guess this isnt very helpful for you. Sorry
