I want anyone in group www-data to have write access to
/var/www. For example, if 'a' and 'b' are in group www-data and 'a' creates a file in
/var/www - then 'b' will be able to edit it.
The problem is that I create files that PHP and Apache can't edit - and they create files I can't edit without sudo. Both PHP and myself are in www-data group.
I changed the umask setting
umask 022 to
umask 002. Is this a safe and proper way to handle this?
Update: Even after changing /etc/profile and restarting the computer PHP still creates files with permission
