WEBDAV directory and file ownership

    I have a perfect server setup, Fedora Core 10, ispconfig 2.

    Enabling WEBDAV is no problem, except that in order for a WEBDAV client to be able to write to the "web/" directory, I have to chmod it to 0777. After creating pages there with a client, the pages are owned by root.apache.

    Is that right or is something wrong in our setup?

    The real problem at the end is that the website client cannot change the files using FTP, permission denied. At the same time, if the files already exist, then WEBDAV cannot work with them as they are owned by the website admin.group.

    Do we need to run SUPHP in order for WEBDAV to use the website admin owner.group?

    That's normal, and that's why you should either use FTP or WebDAV, not both at the same time.

    Thank you Falko. Makes sense. I appreciate the quick reply.
