[REBOL] Re: [REBOL]Cgi Script file access problem

From: cribbsj:oakwood at: 15-Nov-2000 12:14

Well, I can think of a couple of suggestions: 1). Change the permissions on your /home/httpd/cgi-bin directory to allow write access to all users. However, I would strongly recommend AGAINST this unless this web server is on an intranet that you know is completely secure and you trust all of the people who could access it. The reason is that you are giving anyone the ability to write, delete, change files in that directory. Again, I don't recommend you do this unless you are absolutely sure. But if you do decide to do this, simply login as root and type the following command: chmod o+w /home/httpd/cgi-bin 2). You could change the path in your script to another directory on your linux box that allows write permissions to everybody. That way, you could pick a directory that you don't care if somebody blows it away. That's the only two I can think of off the top of my head. I'm sure some of the gurus who patrol this list will have others! Jamey. On Wednesday 15 November 2000 11:28, you wrote:
