Re: [vox-tech] NFS mounting a VFAT filesystem - uid and gid issues?



Hi Marc:

I think the permissions on /var/www/tiny is your problem.

Try chmod 775 (world read and execute) /var/www/tiny so that apache (or
whatever user/group that apache runs as) can read from your mounted
directory.

Or, you could set apache to run as nobody:users, since that is the
user/group owner of your mounted directory.

HTHO,

jan

I believe that unarmed truth and unconditional love will have the final word in reality. That is why right, temporarily defeated, is stronger than evil triumphant.
