Keep using chmod 777 or use „apache” and chmod 775
With webassist tools we build a upload/download documents folder and placed that folder on the linus vps server outsside (same level as) the website folder httdocs (plesk) to keep the downloadable files visible when logged in only. At first uploading files did not work, but I noticed that adjusting the chmod of the upload folder (on unix vps ) to 777 did work. Files are up- and downloading. But chmod 777 is not secure (I assume). Is it an option to set the user in chmod to „apache”, can I use chmod 775 again?
