I'm using cpanel, that runs on red hat linux, which by default runs Apache as a user called
nobody. Ubuntu does something similar, but call the user
By default, when you create a new account for the user, all the files belong to the new user, so the owner might be
The thing is, all the php is executed by
nobody, and for default config permission settings, you need to either be the owner of the files, or in the group allowed to update the files.
I've tried chowning the wordpress files to belong to
nobody, which makes the auto update process easier, at the cost of letting
joeblogs edit his files as easily.
What's the simplest, most maintainable way to allow a user,
joeblogs AND the apache user,
nobody to update all the files in an account directory, to let them keep their wordpress install up to date easily, while still having as much control over their space as possible?
