File Permissions in Resources Folder

I'm having an issue where we are uploading files via the assets functionality but the permissions on the files are getting changed in the upload process. Is there any way of disabling that?

Ultimatly as we are using Active Directory (LDAP) logins people have to keep providing their login credentials to download files and it is frustrating our staff - sometimes it is an impossible task.

You probably need to talk to your host about that.

What about...

    define('PERCH_CHMOD_FILES', '765');

Would that not be the solution?

Chmod doesn't work on Windows?

Dan Lee

Good point - I'm on IIS 7

I'm guessing there isn't an equivalent for the config file in perch?

Duncan Revell

As Drew says, it's a Windows permissions thing. I'm sure on Windows, PHP runs as Local System. If users are having trouble getting files from that folder, change Windows permissions on the folder itself or change the authentication method on the web server.

Might have to modify the core to run the windows attrib command

\core\lib\PerchUtil.class.php

    public static function set_file_permissions($filename)
    {
        if (defined('PERCH_CHMOD_FILES'))
            @chmod($filename, PERCH_CHMOD_FILES);
    }

EDIT: See

Thanks for you help guys. This seems to solve the problem:

Solution:

Updated \core\lib\PerchUtil.class.php so that files inherit permissions from its new location. This is an update to the core perch files - so you would need to be aware of any updates to the file.

public static function set_file_permissions($filename)
{
// inherit permissions from its new location
exec( 'icacls "'.$filename.'" /q /c /reset' );

if (defined('PERCH_CHMOD_FILES'))
@chmod($filename, PERCH_CHMOD_FILES);
}

You also need to be aware that you no longer qualify for support if you modify core files.

Is that on a per licence basis?

Drew McLellan

By editing the software you're in breach of the license agreement. Out of fairness to customers who follow the license agreement, we don't divert resources to those who break it. Especially when we then have no idea what we're trying to support because the software has been changed.

Dan Lee

Ok, thanks Drew. In that case, I'll revert the implementation of this and ask our IT team to fix the permissions in ISS rather than breach the agreement.
