    on a normal webserver installation of ubuntu www-data group and owner has full access to /var/www and as such during a live run if a element on the site being hosted needs to write to the folder maybe to create a file or directory then the process would succeed.

    in the case of ispconfig the ownership is changed to webX:clientX whenever element on the site being hosted needs tocreate file or folders (as in the case of moodle for new course contents) a permission error is thrown

    i thought of changing the permissons to reflect webx:www-data instead but that what mean ill have to do the same for every new client/site...what will be a good fix for this issue?

    You selcted the wrong PHP mode.

    1) enable suexec in the website settings.
    2) use either cgi-php for low traffic sites or php-fcgi for high traffic sites. Do not use mod_php.

    thanks for that till
    but another question then

    in the example below, shouldn't web18 be the owner for directory <web18> just curious to enable the shell client access to create objects in the root of web18
    [email protected]:/var/www/clients/client6$ ls -l
    drwxr-xr-x 6 root root 4096 2010-09-16 07:51 web18

    No. The permissions and the ownership are fine.
