Permissions: What's the right way to give Apache more user permissions?
Before I knew better, I used /home/someuser/public_html/scripts as a place from which shared scripts could be accessed by various users' php scripts.
Something changed when we went from one server to another and now the only way that was working was to set public_html to 0755. Since we now have some customers with access to their own accounts, this is not acceptable. I tested a work around by adding a user to the same group as someuser and putting another folder at /home/someuser/test_folder and setting it to 0750. Now my users who share the group can access test_folder. A user that is not in the group cannot, but if I chmod public_html from 755 to 750, I get permission errors even from the users that are in the same group. I checked lsattr and the only attrib that is set is "I" on public_html
Any ideas on what to try next?
