    in my phpbb2 script i got a mod that has a built in ftp client and that needs to have this permission so it can install the script...

    this is the errors i'm getting from it..

    It's a permissions problem. Let's assume your web site is owned by web1_user, and you upload all files/directories with this user (over FTP). Then all files/directories are owned by web1_user.
    Now let's assume your Apache runs under the user www-data. Now whenever a PHP application wants to write some file or run a mkdir or chmod, etc., it does this as www-data, and of course it isn't allowed to do so because the owner is web1_user.
    You could now log in on the shell and make www-data the owner of all files/directories, but then you wouldn't be able to upload with web1_user.
    A solution would be to give all files/directories the permissions 777, or to use suPHP. http://www.howtoforge.com/suphp_debian_etch_ispconfig

    Hi falko, the problem above is the drawback for customer when we setup applicaton? Do we have another solution to solve it than suPHP? How the other CPanel has resolved it?

    All controlpanels use suphp or a similar software to solve this.
