I know this is a common issue but I haven't been able to single out the problem for my specific use case, so bear with me.
I have a simple PHP script
send_id which simply sends an ID number and saves it to a TXT file on my RHEL server running Apache 2.4.6 with PHP 5.4.
The error message:
Warning: file_put_contents(/var/www/html/id.txt): failed to open stream: Permission denied in /var/www/html/send_id.php on line 6
'1' written to server
The PHP script itself:
<?php $id=$_GET['id']; $stringData = "$id"; $file = file_put_contents('/var/www/html/id.txt', $stringData.PHP_EOL , FILE_APPEND |LOCK_EX); echo "'$stringData' written to server"; ?>
chmodding to 777 didn't do anything. Additionally, I checked to see ownership rights and noticed that the id.txt file is owned by the root user at both user/group level, and PHP is being run at root level.
Anyone have any suggestions? If its any help, this seems to have happened after a
