apache user/group won't create directory
 
I installed ISPConfig on a Fedora Core 4 box. I followed all of the Fedora Core 4 installation instructions except that I installed all of the available packages. Everything is working great! However, I cannot get my PHP scripts to create a directory so that I can upload an image.

My PHP script attempts to make a recursive directory based on the date. First, the script creates a directory based on the year. This works correctly. The directory listing for the created directory shows:

[root@ddnsserver1 servadmin]# ls -Fl /home/www/web11/web/website/media/image
total 76
drwxrwxrwx 2 apache apache 4096 Aug 4 07:16 2005/

Next, the PHP script attempts to create a directory that is based on the name of the month inside of the directory that is created based on the year. Even though the permission bits show it has write set, I cannot get the script to create the directory.

These scripts have worked correctly on many different services. Furthermore, I have checked, using the Fedora Core 4 security panel, to make sure that SELinux and the firewall are off. The only firewall is the firewall that was installed with ISPConfig.

Can anyone offer some advice/help?

Do you get any errors from your script?
Maybe you can change your script so that it shows what it's doing and output the values of some variables?

The error log says...
 
mkdir() [<a href='function.mkdir'>function.mkdir</a>]: SAFE MODE Restriction in effect. The script whose uid is 10011 is not allowed to access /home/www/web11/web/website/media/image/2005 owned by uid 48 in /home/www/web11/web/phplib/class/media.php on line 182, referer: http://womcaterers.hopto.org/website..._add_image.php

I checked the /etc/php.ini config file and it says:

safe_mode = Off

My limited understanding says that if safe_mode = Off then I should not be having a SAFE MODE issue. Is this the case?

Have you checked the "PHP safemode" checkbox in the options for this site in the controlpanel?

Problem solved!
 
That was the problem. I had PHP Safe Mode checked in the control panel. I unchecked it and the scripts worked perfectly. Thanks to all.
