#8356 closed (fixed)

The documentation for mod_python should state the permissions or ownership settings of the project files

Reported by: anonymous Owned by: jacob
Component: Documentation Version: 0.96
Severity: Keywords: apache, mod_python, ownership, permissions, django
Cc: Triage Stage: Accepted
Has patch: no Needs documentation: no

Easy pickings: UI/UX:


The docs should be explicit about the permissions that the apache user must have over the project source files. I think that the apache user should either have ownership or read and execute rights. (Can someone please clarify this?)

I believe all the apache needs is read access to the files, as long as the database isn't sqlite, or similarly file-based.

This has been fixed for a bit; the docs now read:

Make sure that your Python source files' permissions are set such that the Apache user (usually named apache or httpd on most systems) will have read access to the files.
