What would you like to do?
Ubuntu and www:data permissions in amazon AWS EC2
Every time I have to go to terminal, ssh and do this to change the permissions between Joomla (www-data) and FileZilla (ubuntu)
sudo chown -R www-data.www-data /var/www/html (Joomla)
sudo chown -R ubuntu /var/www/html (File Zilla)
How do I set it so that I don't have to change this every time?
Add the ubuntu user to the www-data group
# sudo usermod -a -G www-data ubuntu
# sudo chmod g+w /var/www/html -R
(group writeable) all your files.
# sudo reboot
sudo groupadd www-data
sudo usermod -a -G www-data ec2-user
sudo chown root:www-data /var/www/html
sudo chmod -R 775 /var/www/html
