Server Fault is a question and answer site for professional system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I have a Apache server with mod_wsgi installed. I wanted to write a file, run a program with this file as input and send the output file back.

How can I get write permission on the server. What is the safest way to do it?

Do you administer this server? –  TylerShads Nov 23 '11 at 13:44
Yes. I administer the server. This will most likely be done on an Amazon EC2 instance. Right now I'm doing it on my pc. So, yes, I can change environment if it is inevitable. –  SparrowG Nov 23 '11 at 13:49
