Changing file permission for WordPress interface in fedora

0 votes

A user on my box has Wordpress installed under a virtualhost. He has other users uploading photos to different directories using Wordpress' interface. The concern is that these directories are defaulting/need to be setup to 777 permissions for the uploads to be successful.

Any advice.

Just chown the uploads directories to the user WordPress is running as (most likely "httpd"), then you can chmod 755 it.

(I'm assuming their doing this with the WordPress interface and not S/FTP. It would be a bit more complicated if that were the case, but that seems unlikely.)

In android generally when an app is installed, the PackageInstallerActivity and PackageManagerService make sure to assign the supplementary gid's to the app. This determines the level of access when an app is invoked everytime.

I just wanted to confirm if any verification process takes place in the runtime from packagemanager or any other service for that matter.

The app is granted the corresponding access from the gid's that should get it running technically and Packagemanager will only come into picture incase of updating the app.

Is my understanding correct?

I've a problem of not having enough permissions for setting a “persist.xxxxx” property from one of the applications. This application shares the User-id of the phone so I tried to hack in property_service.c and add an entry:

{“persist.”, AID_RADIO, 0} 
in property_perms structure. 

After this I was able to set the property but without this I get a “permission denied” error "> init: sys_prop: permission denied uid:1001 name:persist.xxxxx". Any clue...

I have an fc17 system in which I've had to change the ethernet controller from an e1000e card to what I believe is an rtl81391`2. I recall changing the 70-persistent-net udev config file, but that appears to no longer exist on my fc17 system.

What is the proper procedure for detecting, initializing, and reconfiguring the system to use my new card?

I believe I'll also had to use dracut to recreate the initrd. I will also need to detect for sure which driver the new ethernet controller uses.
