Having a weird problem on a Solaris 10 box. I have a cgi script (perl) which needs to overwrite a file. We do not have suexec running on Apache so the destination directory has full (777) access so that Apache can write to it.
The problem is that the CGI script is able to write a new file to the directory but not overwrite an existing file.
**Directory permissions for file destination:** drwxrwxrwx 146 myuser white 32768 Jun 2 20:46 dest-dir **File Permissions of file that needs to be over written:** -rw-r--r-- 1 myuser white 0 Jun 2 20:50 cgitestfile
Anyone know a simple solution for resolving this ??
Seems like apache can only overwrite a file if it owns it.
