All servers having SuPHP installed for added security Print

  • 6

The main features of SuPHP that you should be aware of is:

  1. SuPHP does not allow files/folders to run where they have group and world write permissions; only the account owner can write to files/folders. This forces all users to ensure that their files/folders have correct permissions and prevents hackers uploading malicious content into vulnerable folders.
  2. SuPHP allows all PHP scripts to be run under the user account ownership, instead of running under the €œnobody€ user. This is particurly helpful in tracking down scripts which send out SPAM as the €œnobody€ user.

Most user accounts will not notice any difference. However a number of user accounts will have some problems/errors which can be easily resolved using this command in terminal €œif you dont have root access try to ask your System Administrator€

for files:
find . -name *.php -type f -exec chmod 644 {} ;
find . -type f -exec chmod 644 {} ;
for folders:
find . -type d -exec chmod 755 {} ;
