I am running the LEMP Stack on Ubuntu 14.04
I am always getting permission denied whenever my php file is trying to save or upload something. If I chmod the folder to 777 it works but I don’t want to change it to 777. I checked the owner of all the files in my application . It is root / root (owner / group ).
I have the exact same project on a different server with permissions set as 0755 and the owner as 501 / 500 and the application works flawlessly. But I don’t know that the 501 / 500 stands for.
Also I just checked the following for my application:
/usr/share/nginx/html/example1/app/webroot script owner : root script getmyuid : 0 script getmygid : 0
How come the script owner is root and I still get permission denied ?
