Help with web host automation script installation


Recommended Posts

I joined here to get some help with a script I'm trying to install on my hosting site and maybe to get a little more comfortable with php. I hope that someone will help me. I see that there are a lot of unanswered questions in this section.

My problem is that the script I'm installing (tinytool which is a web hosting automation script) requires that the folder that it resides in be chmod to 777. Unfortunately my web host doesn't allow chmod of 777. Is there any way to work around this problem? If not I'm going to have to find a new script.

The zip file for tinytool can be downloaded at my site.
The script is small so it wont be too time consuming to look it over if your willing to help.

Thanks a bunch

It`s a little difficult to say what you should do with this problem, cause i don`t know what permissions you are allowed to set on your folders. I have looked over the tiny tool script, and if i read the script correct, you dont have to set chmod 777 on the folder. You could set chmod 755, and as low as 600 depending on what "user" has the ownership of the files. If you change the ownership to the user with highest access, then there should be no problem.
