No Edwin .. I can't do any thing to that file .. not even from my
ftp client .. can't download can't change permissions ..
The server is managed by rackspace .. I doubt they would do some
thing like running apache as root which I "hear" is a v foolish
thing to do (frankly I don't know how to figure it out myself
..if that is the case .. phpinfo() did not say any thing on
A brief restatement of problem
File uploaded via HTTP POST to /tmp OK
After this I tried the following three things and none worked.
a) fopen("/tmp/temp_file_name","rb") FAILED (Operation not
b) copy($tempfile, "/place/to/put/uploaded/file") FAILED
c) move_uploaded_file($userfile, "/place/to/put/uploaded/file")
DID COPY BUT file had -rw-------- permissions, and could not open
this file either... so back to square 1
The directory in "/place/to/put/uploaded/file is mode 777 .
Still fighting it out.
