How to: Development: Fix Ownership and Permissions¶
Most of CS-Cart files should have the 644 permissions, and all directories must be set to 755. When you using CS-Cart, the
design directories, and all their subdirectories and files should have the 777 permissions. This is required to allow CS-Cart to upload files to these directories for routine operations.
CS-Cart permission fixer¶
For clients of our hosting, we provide the tool cscart_permfixer. Just call command via command line (SSH), select project and push “Enter”. Fixed :)
root@highloadtest public_html> cscart_permfixer We found cs-cart in directories: 1. /srv/projects/highloadtest.cloud.simtechdev.us/public_html Please input the number of the CS-Cart project and press Enter: 1 Fixing all file permissions ... Complete.
Execute the following commands one by one:
1 2 3 4 5
chmod 644 config.local.php chmod -R 755 design images var find design -type f -print0 | xargs -0 chmod 644 find images -type f -print0 | xargs -0 chmod 644 find var -type f -print0 | xargs -0 chmod 644
These commands set the right permissions for the files, so that CS-Cart can install properly. The 3 digits represent the rights of the owner of the file/directory, the owner’s group, and other users respectively.
For example, chmod 644
config.local.php means that:
- The owner of
config.local.phpcan read the file and write to it (6).
- The group to which the owner belongs (e.g., administrators) can read the file (4).
- All other users can also read the file (4).
Set the developer user as the owner of your CS-Cart files. We provide user developer, and its group is service as well. In this case, this is the command you need to use:
chown -R developer:service .
