See this is what annoys me about SuiteCRM…If you run SuiteCRM on a VPS (many VPS is much more powerful than a basic dedicated server) you CANNOT SET 775…We can only use 644 for files and 755 for folders. Yet people keep giving advice to set other permission settings. Its like SuiteCRM completely forget about VPS servers.
SuiteCRM is an application that writes itself. You change things in studio, and not only configuration files change, but actual PHP that will be executed changes.
So it’s impossible to have SuiteCRM if your hosting won’t let an app change itself, i.e, have your web server user write in those directories.
Of course, numbers like 0644 don’t mean anything by themselves. It also depends on ownership and the web-server user, and which groups he belongs to.
So it’s up to your VPS hosting to explain to you, with the restrictions it enforces, what is the correct way for an app that needs to write it’s own directories to operate. But maybe that’s a different thread (nothing to do with Zapier).
