Posted:  01 Jun 2017 16:04
I am moving my Luxcal installation from a Windows based server to one on Ubuntu/Apache.  I am having trouble getting the permissions/user auth set to get the install script to complete.  It is failing at the test stage with permissions errors.

Can anyone tell me what permissions are needed?  I have chmod'd 755 for directories and 644 for files, but I suspect that I may also need to change the user/owner too.  Do these need to be the apache service user?  Any guidance on hardening the relevant directories?

For the sake of anyone else needing it ... I have confirmed changing the file owner/group to the Apache user gets the file writing problem sorted but breaks the mySQL access ...

Doh!  The database was not created... I could have sworn it was already set up!  Sorry for anyone's wasted time.

If anyone can give me some advise on what file settings to make to make the calendar a bit more secure I would still be grateful.
