    [SOLVED] Web Site ownership


    I'm using ISPConfig on a private network with no clients. I want it to create all web sites with owner/group of apache/apache. What file do I need to modify in order to accomplish this?

    You will have to change the apache plugin in /usr/local/ispconfig/server/plugins-enabled. But this will be a lot of work without any real benefits as you can use e.g. php as fcgi to run php scripts under the user of the site.

    Thanks Till, I'd never used FastCGI before. So far so good.

    For those of you interested in modifying the apache plugin here you go:

    vi /usr/local/ispconfig/server/plugins-enabled/apache2_plugin.inc.php
    Around line 198 added groupname variable like so:
    function update($event_name,$data) {
         global $app, $conf;
          $groupname = "apache";
    Around line 403 commented out groupname and added my own like so:
     //$groupname = escapeshellcmd($data["new"]["system_group"]);
     $groupname = "apache";
    Around line 430 added a chmod to make group writeable:
    exec("chown -R $username:$groupname ".escapeshellcmd($data["new"]["document_root"]));
    exec("chmod -R ug+w ".escapeshellcmd($data["new"]["document_root"]));
