Hey guys, Need a little help as I'm stuck. I have a custom setup on the server and proftpd running (only when required). The folder structure for websites is like this: /home/www/domain.tld/public_html www = owner: www_users, group: www_users domain.tld = owner: www_users, group: www_users public_html = owner: www_users, group: www_users All sites have the same owner and are in the same group as above. Now I had to install suPHP which works fine. For each site, I created a new user for proftpd and added the user to group www_users. So that the required sites (just a few of them) have their own username/password for ftp login. Of course the problem here are the permissions. If I leave it as it is, suPHP is working fine, proftpd can login, view files but cannot upload (550 permission denied error). If I change (chown -R ftpuser1:www_users *) for a domain (public_html folder) the owner to "ftpuser1", group as "www_users", FTP is working fine, I can upload, delete,... But the website gives the 500 error: Code: [Thu Jan 19 10:12:47 2012] [warn] Directory /home/www/domain.tld is not owned by ftpuser1 Even if I chown "domain.tld" folder, suphp still gives me the above warn. I can't figure out how to convince suphp to allow ftpuser1 as the owner. /etc/suphp/suphp.conf Code: [global] ;Path to logfile logfile=/var/log/suphp/suphp.log ;Loglevel loglevel=info ;User Apache is running as webserver_user=www-data ;Path all scripts have to be in docroot=/home/www ;Path to chroot() to before executing script ;chroot=/mychroot ; Security options allow_file_group_writeable=false allow_file_others_writeable=false allow_directory_group_writeable=false allow_directory_others_writeable=false ;Check wheter script is within DOCUMENT_ROOT check_vhost_docroot=true ;Send minor error messages to browser errors_to_browser=false ;PATH environment variable env_path=/bin:/usr/bin ;Umask to set, specify in octal notation umask=0022 ; Minimum UID min_uid=100 ; Minimum GID min_gid=100 [handlers] ;Handler for php-scripts application/x-httpd-php=php:/usr/bin/php-cgi ;Handler for CGI-scripts x-suphp-cgi=execute:!self Current folder structure (suphp works, proftpd gives 550 error): Code: drwxr-xr-x 3 www_users www_users 4096 Aug 13 2009 domain.tld Inside "domain.tld": Code: drwxr-xr-x 21 www_users www_users 4096 Jan 19 10:12 public_html Inside the "public_html" all files and folders are "www_users" owner and group. id ftpuser1: Code: uid=5003(ftpuser1) gid=5001(www_users) groups=5001(www_users) Need help please.
