    Hello,

    I have moved server!
    New server Centos 5.2 Old Fedora core 4

    On the old server folders are chmod 755 and writeble.
    On the new server folders are chmod 755 and unwriteble.

    The new server demands 777 for folders to be writeble

    How can I fix this without starting to chmod folders ?

    Thanks
    Bjorn

    Tell server "I want doesn't get"....:eek:

    It sounds like your old server had phpSuExec enabled and the new one doesn't.Try installing phpSuExec on the new server.

    PHPSuExec no longer exists. One must use suPHP to obtain comparable behavior.

    Right, you must enable suPHP on your server in order to have directory permissions as 755 and writable. In order to enable suPHP, you need to compile Apache with /scripts/easyapache command and select the required option. Once complete, login to WHM and click on "Configure PHP and SuExec" and confirm that suPHP is set as the handler for PHP.
