Hi Everyone,

I am creating a file in PHP script which takes a value from a form and
writes it
to a file. However, i don't have the mode permission for the file instead it
is owned
by www-data.What can i do to ensure that the file is owned by me.

drwxr-xr-x 2 www-data www-data 4096 2011-01-17 22:01 18757170111.0
-rw-r--r-- 1 www-data www-data   40 2011-01-17 23:39 32238.hydro


Either have a PHP script create the directory, OR

Using FTP access, set the dir perms to 757, or 777. The xx7 makes the dir world writable.

For protection, put a .htaccess file in the dir like:

# Prevent Direct Access to Files from outside world
<Files *>
Order Deny,Allow
Deny from all

Or put your dir above the webspace, [DOCUMENT_ROOT}
