Software :: Write Access In .htaccess File On Hosted Server?
Apr 23, 2011
I have a site hosted on a cheap hosting company and I need to allow write access to certain users in certain directories, sometimes on a file basis.
Q: how do I do that in a .htaccess file?
I have never used .htaccess although from what I read it looks straightforward but when I try it, I get a "500 server error" even with the example .htaccess file the hosting company suggested I use. (I have informed the host as they require and am awaiting their answer)
The site is automatically set up with a couple of dot file in the root directory when I got it, they are:
I have a site hosted with a cheap hosting company and limited control of the site. I need to allow some other users all over the world to have write access to files or complete directories and I have no idea how to do that. Initially I thought I could use "chown" somehow but it looks like it's a no-go with ftp and others. By default, there is a .htaccess file and a .htpasswd file in the root directory of the site and the hosting company suggested to use .htaccess file with something like below:
and put it in a .htaccess file in the directory of user1 but the server does not like something since I inserted that file. Is it an error in the script or is there more to it than that? Can someone point me to a suitable tutorial or explain what to do?
I would like to use an extra physical hard drive in my linux server to provide my wife a place to backup her Windows XP desktop.I am willing to format this drive as NTFS (or anything else) and have it dedicated to this purpose. I am wondering what is the easiest way to proceed?
I am using Apache with Kerberos security enabled. The http page simply lists the directories contained in /var/www/html. I want to make only one of the directories in the document root secured so that when someone clicks on it, it requires him/her to enter credentials. Right now when I place the .htaccess file in the directory I want to protect, the directory is hidden from the list and the user has to enter the whole path to get authenticated and access the files.
I've tried Options +Indexes which was posted all over the net, but it didn't work.
I need to redirect through a .htaccess file in my root folder. The redirect needs to be done from http://www.department.univeristy.edu/reuir to a different server [url]. I am having trouble in determining the pattern that is required for it to take effect.
In my nagios server, an htaccess file have been created for it so any time you want to open it, a window opens for you to enter user name and passwords. Now, what I want to do now is to integrate the nagios into a portal that is written in php so that when customers login to the portal, they can access the nagios with out it popping out the user and password windows. What is going to happen is, the password of nagios will be store in an orient database so the users when they try to access nagios true the portal, they will be login automatically.
I am traveling to the UK next week, and whilst I am there, I need to be able to access my SAMBA shares hosted on my HOMESERVER, via my laptop in england.
I have tried Hamachi before, which works fine on windows, but the linux version is awful, and hardly works. So I need an alternative. I did a bit of googling, but I don't know what "bridged" means when I found a OpenVPN tutorial
I was wondering if anyone could give me some information as to what I'll need, and what I'll need to do on both my homeserver and my laptop?
I own a particular file on a Linux system. I would like to give 2 groups (accounting, shipping) read access and only read access, and 3 users(Mike, Raj and Wally) write access and only write access. How can I accomplish this?
I have apache2 running on my computer. I want to change the permissions for /var/www/ so that I can edit the files without a problem. Right now I can use the gksudo command, but I'd like to be able to have all the files available when using an IDE like eclipse. I've read in several places that Code: chmod 755 /var/www will do, but if I'm not mistaken that would give read/write access to anyone. I'm not in a production environment, so I'm not too worried about security, but I'd like to give anyone else as less permissions as possible. Would this be possible?
What are the possible problem when Windows access the file from Ubuntu got Read Only even though have a full permission to read, write and execute the file? Ubuntu to Ubuntu accessing the file there is no problem only Windows got a problem.
I am not at all convinced by the idea of giving permissions to read,write and execute as these Learning Management Systems say. Let me know what you people have to say? What is the best practise in such situations? I have to get all these LMS run on same web server.
I am using samba t share my files.I am sharing /media/MEDIA folder. it is a ntfs partition mounted with ntfs-3g with write/read access from linux.I can see and browse my shares and also create files in the root of this partition, ie /media/MEDIA, but in its subfolders i do not have write permissions.
another interesting thing is that i have permission to create directory and delete files everywhere and in any folder, subfolder but when trying to create files i get not enough free disk space error.by the way i dont know if this config file is correct, i find as template in internet.
I'm running Ubuntu 9.1 server on an PII Compaq. Read an article "Samba: How to share files for your LAN without user/password" [URL] and some others and can see and pull up files, can't change or delete. Here is my smb.conf:
# Sample configuration file for the Samba suite for Debian GNU/Linux. # This is the main Samba configuration file. You should read the # smb.conf(5) manual page in order to understand the options listed # here. Samba has a huge number of configurable options most of which # are not shown in this example
# Some options that are often worth tuning have been included as # commented-out examples in this file. # - When such options are commented with ";", the proposed setting # differs from the default Samba behaviour # - When commented with "#", the proposed setting is the default # behaviour of Samba but the option is considered important # enough to be mentioned here .....
I am trying to write a script to access sqlplus and use the output to replace the result in another file. But I am having some issues with it (This script is just a test script and I am just trying to print the updated value.
I'm pulling my hair out trying to figure out what is wrong with my Samba share. I have set up a directory /samba to serve up some movies, music, etc, on an Ubuntu 10.04 Server box. For now, I have given that directory 777 permissions, along with the subfolders:
Code: drwxrwxrwx 4 michal michal 4096 2010-06-22 18:02 Apps drwxrwxrwx 3 michal michal 4096 2010-06-22 19:02 Music drwxrwxrwx 3 michal michal 4096 2010-08-14 19:27 Pics drwxrwxrwx 5 michal michal 4096 2010-06-22 19:48 Video This is how my smb.conf file looks like for this particular share:
Code: [share1] comment = share1 browsable = yes path = /samba write list = michal Furthermore, I went ahead and mapped the Samba user to my Linux user account in /etc/samba/smbusers:
Code: michal = "michal" When I try to login from a Windows machine using michal as the username, I can see the folders, but I am unable to create new files on the share. Considering that the file system permissions are liberal on the share directory, I have no clue as to why I'm still getting denied write permission.
i compiled and install postfix, and i using relayhost that point to my ISP. but my "DNS server" is on the same server where is installed postfix. and there is running apache with vhosts so i have domain that hosted on same server and in zonefiles of my domain my MX records points to Google Apps, to google's MX servers. But when i try send E-mail via sendmail to firstname.lastname@example.org it not deliver mail to Google Apps totally, if i try to send to another E-mail everything fine it deliver it. so finally i done research this problem in Internet. And find that need to disable deliver mail to localhost(localdelivery)as i think postfix understand that the domain point to the same server where postfix have itself. and try to deliver mail local. but zonefile MX record even the domain on same server can point to another server outside. So i disabled localdelivery in postfix. and problem not fixed
I'm looking to set up a server with attached mass storage device and tape autoloader to run linux. It's set up under Windows at the moment. Goal is to have users, connecting from individual workstations and laptops, backup their data to the linux server. On their personal machine, some users run linux, some MacOS, some Windows. I plan to set up the 5 500 GB drives as RAID5. I understand that if setting up as software raid the format is "physical volume for RAID". Under this setup, will Windows users be able to read/write and function as expected? I can't assume only linux user access.
When i starts it for the first time,my sites getting loaded fast when requested through browser,but slows down gradually. what could be the reason, my cpu load seems ok. Because i have another site hosted through apache in the same server and its getting loaded fast. so what could be the issue.
Made an account specially for this. I have a server hosted with iWeb and obviously cant just stick the CD in and fresh install. Im looking to upgrade the entire server to 9.10 all through SSH or within 8.04's GUI all the while not having to reboot until its ready to run and configured otherwise im left with an inactive server...
I have just joined this respective forum and I have a issue with website hosted on Virtual Redhat Server. Scenario is like this I have three virtual redhat server(R1,R2,R3) 5.0 on VMware workstation 7.0 installed on window 7(physical machine), on R1 I have DNS server , On R2 I have Apache web server and I have hosted a website called "geekgadget.com" just for testing purpose, R3 is just a normal server nothing installed on it yet..
Problem : I can access my website [URL] from all of my three virtual redhat server but when I try to access it from some of my physical XP,window 7 machines as well as from virtual XP machine present on my local LAN, website cannot be accessed so I am not getting the point why it happens because I checked that my port 80 is listening.
