Storing Data Outside client#/web#/web
A number of programs such as moodle and gallery2 want data directory storage outside of the web/ directory for various reasons, but the open_basedir does not allow for that except in tmp/.
Is it safe to add the /var/www/clients/client*/web* directory to the open_basedir paths that are allowed? Perhaps we could add a /var/www/clients/client*/web*/data/ directory to templates and make it allowed just for this purpose?
I suppose that we could put these in the /var/www/clients/client*/web*/tmp directory but I am thinking some user might just think is is ok to clean that out once in a while...
Centos 6.3 OS and latest Apache, PHP, MYSQL using suEXEC and suPHP.
Thanks for all your help,
