Saw this question:
Could this be SELinux related, currently /etc/sysconfig/selinux is setting to permissive:
Disabled SELINUX, no change.
Platform: This on CentOS 5.5, Apache 2
ls -l gives
-rw-rw-r-- 1 root mail 9230 Mar 2 10:25 2011 MyFile.txt
I need to give apache user read access to /var/MyApp directory.
chmod a+r /var/MyApp -R
And ls -l confirms that all file permissions have changed to allow any user to read. But when I do this
sudo -u apache tail /var/MyApp/MyFile.txt
I get this error:
tail: cannot open `/var/MyApp/MyFile.txt' for reading: Permission denied
Does apache user require some special configuration to allow read access?
