    Hello,

    I was wondering what is the safest/proper way to handle permissions for folders when using DSO?

    I noticed that I can either set folder ownership to nobody or change folder permission to 777 for php to run properly but which would be the better option?

    Thanks!

    Hi Michael!

    I was going to install Mod_ruid2 but I believe it disables many cache options. I'll be running a xenforo forum. Do you have any recommendations?

    Thanks!

    You could investigate to see which aspects of the script are requiring the use of special ownership and permission values, and determine if there are alternatives to those features. Otherwise, you will need to use a handler other than DSO if you want to avoid the use of insecure permission and ownership values.

    Thank you.
