I've been looking over the output from phpinfo to find a way to portably get the server user name. It is not obvious to me...
Can I get that from an $_ENV or $_SERVER value?
I have a web base cms system with a file editor and want to test for ownership of the files and directories
without having to hard code the server name.
I can get file owner ship but if I want to verify it is the server user account, I would do:
$_name = getOwner()
if($_name == < portable reference to server user name>)
This would be for enhanced access permissions analysis. If a file is being written to by the server user (via php code) it would be helpful to determine that to forstall error message generation.
