I am having some trouble creating files in directory on my Ubuntu machine:
I added myself to the
www-data group in order for me to easily edit stuff in my /var/www dir on my development machine.
stat /var/www shows the following:
File: ‘/var/www’ Size: 4096 Blocks: 8 IO Block: 4096 map Device: 808h/2056d Inode: 142853 Links: 3 Access: (0775/drwxrwxr-x) Uid: ( 33/www-data) Gid: ( 33/www-data) Access: 2010-12-30 16:03:18.563998000 +0100 Modify: 2010-12-30 16:02:52.663998000 +0100 Change: 2010-12-30 16:03:13.111998001 +0100
Still, it is impossible for me to create anything below /var/www (the only way for it to work is to
chmod it to
777. What am I missing?
