[resolved] Suggestions for a host (7 posts)

    Hello All,

    Looking for a VPS or inexpensive/budget managed dedicated.

    I am having issues with permissions and the like. Have to run everything at public write just to get this working with current host (even with suEXEC).

    Perhaps theres a cfg, but I am not easily seeing it. Hearing issues on this host for a multisite app, I am just going to jump ship.

    Suggestions?

  2. Can you chown instead?

    Yes, but I thought it would be bad to chown as Nobody?

  4. chown as the webuser or apache.

    I kicked around the chown. Wound up figuring out that suPHP wasnt enabled. suEXEC was, but php wasnt running in suPHP (if that makes sense).

    I rebuilt php via easyapache, then enabled suPHP at the end. Probably overkill, but better safe than sorry.

    Once I had uploaded files, i logged into to my site (not root) on this particular domain and ran the commands

    find ~/public_html/ -type d -exec chmod 755 {} \;
    find ~/public_html/ -type f -exec chmod 644 {} \;

    Once that was done, WP install was done verbatim. No issues at all.

    Yes, this is something you all know. However, I wanted to post my solution just in case someone stumbles across this thread from a search engine.
