Weird permission issue
I have a PHP app and it runs from /var/www/html/foo. It writes to a
log file in there log.txt. To do some testing I created a dir
/var/www/html/foo.new and installed the code there. To switch back and
forth I do this:
mv /var/www/html/foo /var/www/html/foo.old
mv /var/www/html/foo.new /var/www/html/foo
When I do that I get an error writing to the log file:
Error #2: fopen(/var/www/html/foo/log.txt): failed to open stream:
But if I switch back:
mv /var/www/html/foo /var/www/html/foo.new
mv /var/www/html/foo.old /var/www/html/foo
I do not get the error. The code is identical in foo and foo.new and
the perms and owner on log.txt is identical in too and foo.new. I have
tried restating apache and rebooting the machine, but no joy.
What could be causing the permission error?
