Filemgmt and ownership


CTheSoup

Anonymous
I'm using the filemgmt plugin. I uploaded a file via the plugin, but it seems to be assigning the permissions of the webserver (I assume) because instead of the owner and group being my username (which everything else is) it is a number (48). The perms on the file that is uploaded is 600, so I don't have ownership of the file to change anything. I can have my hosting company admin change the ownership, but this doesn't address the bigger issue of keeping this from happening in the future. Any ideas?

Thanks,

Christian

Check and see what the setting is for $filemgmtFilePermissions in the plugin config.php.

The plugin will execute a chmod (change permissions) on the files after uploading to this setting.

Also, verify that you get the same behaviour if you upload a file as admin (which does not need approval) and as a non-admin user (which requires approval). The code is different for these 2 upload functions.

My config does not have any mention of $filemgmtFilePermissions in it. My config.php for my filemgmt plugin is:

PHP Formatted Code
<br />
<br />$filemgmt_version = "1.2";<br />$_FM_TABLES['filemgmt_cat']                         = $_DB_table_prefix . 'filemgmt_category';<br />$_FM_TABLES['filemgmt_filedetail']          = $_DB_table_prefix . 'filemgmt_filedetail';<br />$_FM_TABLES['filemgmt_filedesc']            = $_DB_table_prefix . 'filemgmt_filedesc';<br />$_FM_TABLES['filemgmt_brokenlinks']             = $_DB_table_prefix . 'filemgmt_broken';<br />$_FM_TABLES['filemgmt_modreq']                  = $_DB_table_prefix . 'filemgmt_mod';<br />$_FM_TABLES['filemgmt_votedata']                = $_DB_table_prefix . 'filemgmt_votedata';<br />$_FM_TABLES['filemgmt_history']         = $_DB_table_prefix . 'filemgmt_downloadhistory';<br /><br />// Include the Filemgmt Plugin configuration which defines Directories and URL's and options<br />// This file is set via the Filemgmt Plugin Admin menu - Configuration settings. Thus needs to be a seperate file.<br />include ("filemgmt.php");<br /><br />?><br />

Help?!

Thanks,

Christian

Can anyone help out? I'm unable to continue with my site, if I can't get this problem worked out. I'm at a loss...not being an accomplished PHP guy.

Thanks.

I was mistaken - thats from a new version I was working on sometime ago.

I can probally be convinced to package this up and send it to you. Send me a email if this is that important to you.

I've taken a utility Bharat Mediratta wrote for Gallery and updated it so that it CHMODs all of the files in the file management data and tmp directories so that the files can be modified or deleted. (In my case, I needed to download the entire directory so that I could move the site.)

You must be logged in as a file management user in order to execute the script.

You can get a copy of the script here.

It works great John.

However, it would be great if the next release of the plugin had functionality to chown and chmod the uploaded files to the admin's liking.

Regards,

Christian

I'm having the same problem with the CHMOD setting itself to 600. Is there and easy work around for this yet, I'm rather new to this and I've gotten a bit stuck.

I tried the script that jlhughes made but after the errors during install, there was no change

I too am gonna be stuck with out this plugin Frown

/public_html/filemgmt_data/category_snaps/2703.png?

Shouldn't that be
/home/lifer/public_html/filemgmt_data/category_snaps/2703.png?

Check your paths.

I have been watching this thread and Blaine... you know exactly what the problem is it sounds like. Have you finished your update to Filemgmt 1.2? I have searched the world over and have found no love... but this;


PHP Formatted Code
     
// the uploaded file is set to chmod 600, and is
// unreadable by webserver
   chmod($dest, 0644);
// makes it so webserver can read the new file

 

(courtesy of some off the wall site I found (here) through a google frenzy I was on)
The only problem is... I have no clue currently how to stick this info into the script/s
without breaking the whole thing to peices. (I am no code guru...
I know enough to make muh self mad)


My installation of the File Manager 1.2 was flawless and it works like a champ. No errors and no sign of a problem until you want to download the files or check out the screenshots. These leaves me having to manually change the permissions from 600 to something readable (644, 775, 777, etc.).


If I have missed a post, or a solution has already been provided, I apologize for trying to rehash... but could you please, PRETTY PLEASE... point me in the right direction?


I could probably figure this out if I was hosting this on my own machine, but this is my brothers site who's hosted elsewhere then my house (for the time being), and I have no control over the PHP, server settings, etc.. Thank you very much for what ever you can relay in advance.
