Cache permissions too strict for backup

Post by alcarola » Tue Feb 10, 2009 6:44 pm

Hi!

I already posted this question in another place, but I suspect that thread is old and dead, so I'll try here as well. I have also seen some other people posting this question without getting any answer. Sorry for any crossposting.

The backup script of my web hotel cannot backup the forum because the files in forum/cache and forum/files are owned by the web server (apache) and not readable by the script (probably run as my user). This was no problem with phpBB 3.0.0 but it appeared somewhere on the upgrade to version 3.0.4.

What is the elegant solution to this problem? Manually changing the permissions on the files is quite tedious as I have to do it one file at a time. It is also a real problem for me, because the forum lies in the directory tree of our entire website (which we can thus also not backup).

Thank you for any help,
Mikael

The permissions on those folders are supposed to be wide open.
They probably cannot be read because the htaccess file is preventing it.
