I am not very familiar with CentOS and its specific permissions issues with httpd+php environment so that I got stuck with "failed to open stream: Permission denied" after installing website on production server.
I have directory layout like that
/usr/local/project ... /usr/local/project/../../public
/var/www/html -> /usr/local/project/../../public ^ symlink
Script tries to write to project's sub directory and gets permission denied error.
I have tried
1) set 744 permissions for this folder 2) set 777 for entire project's tree 3) set open_basedir to /usr/local/project in combination with previous permissions changing
What can cause permissions error?
