While discussing PHP permissions in the last blog, we concluded that SuPHP servers ideally needed PHP file permissions of just 600.
Out of many means to set the permission/ownership, the quickest is to set the permissions, using a script. You may set this script as a cron that runs daily or weekly, to take care of the the permissions. The script is now written for a server that has cPanel installed. Slight modifications to it, would make it work with other control panels, or even on servers that do not have any control panels.
The script also allows certain accounts to have custom PHP permissions, so that any custom application that needs specific permissions can be run, and such accounts would not be affected by the script.
