File System


NTFS-3G is an open source implementation of the Windows file system "NTFS" developed by Microsoft Corporation. It can be used by Unix-like operating systems to read and write on NTFS formatted hard drives.

Web server file permissions

Public web server should provide a high level of security. On the other hand web applications may require some write permissions to the file system. Although changing the permission with chmod to 0777 is one possible solution, it allows read, write and execute commands for everyone. The better solution is to set the owner of the web application to the user of the web server.
