Permissions Issue

webserver: apache
linux: debian sqeeze

I have recently upgraded to and it seems I have a permissions problem. I have previously made a folder var/www/clients/client0/web1/file/ with sub-folders to hide them from normal web access. After upgrade it seems the script cannot access the folder any more

Cache Directory "/var/www/clients/client0/web1/file/cache" not writeable

I have checked permissions of folder

drwxr-xr-x 15 web1 client0 4096 Mar 2 10:57 file

It looks like the script should still be able to access the folder but everything has stopped working.

chattr -i /var/www/clients/client0/web1/file

I ran that but it does not seem to have made a difference, the condition is still the same.

I am a bit stuck and need some more help. What else can I try? Thanks in advance.

chattr -i /var/www/clients/client0/web1

File locations like /var/www/clients/client0/web1/file are not supported anymore when you have folder protection enabled in ispconfig for security reasons. If you want to store files outside of the web dir, then use the new private directory:
