Create subdomain with index page - permissions problem

Started by jylyn, January 24, 2007, 12:47:34 AM


I've just downloaded the subdomain creator and am finding it really useful.

My problem is that I would like to have an index page inside the newly created directory, but my script doesn't have the permissions to write to it.  How do I get around this?


Does your script have permissions to change permissions on newly created folder? If so you could add following php code after directory created:

// everything for owner, read and execute for others
chmod('/path/to/the/folder/here', 0755);

if that does not work then you could try changing 0755 to 0775 or 0777.

It should allow creating index page after that.


Thanks, I tried that, but the script didn't have permission to change the permissions either.

I tried to extend your script to change the permissions via cPanel but only succeeded in locking myself out of the fileserver altogether!  I guess that's why you're the one writing the code, not me :-D


Problem solved.

I just created the folder and contents before creating the subdomain...
