I moved from managed VPS to unmanaged VPS few weeks ago and set it up as I could find guides on net. I've installed Kloxo as my webui for server management etc.
I have a problem with ownership permissions. Most of my websites are running Wordpress, and it is crucial for me to have apache permissions on those folders so WP can do updates and install plugins. But when I give apache ownership ftp breaks in a way that I can't write anything.
I found that groups are for this, and did add apache and ftp to the same group and chowned the folders, but without success. It gives me, or the 403 forbidden in some cases, or the ftp access but not the apache. I'm a bit confused on how to set things up :|
I was also trying to switch to suphp as it can solve some things hear (as I can read), but I have php 5.2.17 version which doesn't go along O_o
I would upgrade to php5.3 if I'm sure that would solve problems, but as my sites need to be live, I have almost no room for playing.
What are your suggestions? I need to have both ftp and php(apache) write permissions!
