Access denied to view the folder..

Postby senthilapt » Wed Mar 22, 2006 9:00 am


I just installed GO 2.15 on Fedora 4. It is working fine except i cant view the folders which i created inside GO. I changed the permission of /home/groupoffice to 777. GO creates the folder with the following permission: d--xrw---x. If I change this manually then it is working fine. Otherwise I cant view the folder inside the GO. My PHP version is 5.1.2. Can anybody guide me to solve this?

I'm also having a similar problem. After installing GO, I install the Files module but then when I click on Files I get an error message saying that it failed creating the directory .../data/users/admin. The folder is writeable and I also changed the value of the $create_mode variable to '0777' in Group-Office.php. Same thing happens when I add other users. I can add them fine, but then when logged in as that user and clicking on Files I get the same error message. GO is not creating the folders as writeable, and if I go in and manually change them then I can view the folder.

Take a look at the PHP chmod code. At one time it was part of the installation of GO to change the permissions of a file/folder to allow someone to immediately start working. I havn't visited the code in a while but should be a decently easy fix

(strange) solution

I've had the same (?) problem:

everytime a new folder/file was created the permissions were set to "--xrw---x" making it unable to open. I've set the create_mode to '0755' wich should have fixed the problem (as i understand some successfully people in the forum) but 0755 brought me this: "-wxrw--wt"

i am using the Pro version so i cannot 'just' take a look at the code ...

Experimenting with some values for 'create_mode' i figured out that '8' brought me "-----x---" and it looks like i have to count decimal bits:
--------x is 1
-------w- is 2
------r-- is 4
-----x--- is 8
-----x--x is 9

so i guessed that 502 should be rwxrw-rw- (or 0755) and i was right. So now my config says 504 to represent 0770 wich is what i want right now. File permissions seem not to be changed by this .. uploaded files seem to always get 666 or rw-rw-rw- mode

hope my posting helps someone :wink:

I had the same problem. Once you install GO change $config['create_mode'] to writeable based on your server setup on config.php

In my case changing to $config['create_mode']='0755'; from $config['create_mode']='755'; worked.
