I have a web server and I'm uploading files using an FTP client. Because of that the owner and the group of the file are taken from the user used during the upload.
Now I have to make this file writable by the web server (apache/apache).
One way would be to just change the owner and the group of the uploaded file to apache/apache, but that way I cannot modify the file using the FTP account. Another way would be to give the file 777 permissions.
Both approaches seem not very professional and a little bit risky. Are there any other options? In Windows I can just add another user to the file. Can something similar done with Linux?
