Files and Permissions for UNIX Web Servers

Archived content. No warranty is made as to technical accuracy. Content may contain URLs that were valid when originally published, but now link to sites or pages that no longer exist.

This appendix lists the file permission settings for both the directories and files that contain the main core of the FrontPage Server Extensions and the directories and files that are installed into the content area of the web server.

Core Server Extensions File/Directory Permissions

The initial installation of the FrontPage Server Extensions will install the following directories and files with the permissions listed below. When virtual servers are added, the appropriate files will be copied from these directories.

This list assumes that the fp_install.sh script was used to install the FrontPage Server Extensions. If the Server Extensions distribution files are manually unpacked then permissions will not be automatically set according to this list.

Content Area File/Directory Permissions

There are two main methods of running the FrontPage Server Extensions on a UNIX server. The two methods are:

  • Single UNIX account per customer

  • Multiple UNIX accounts per customer

For additional information regarding the FrontPage Server Extensions on a UNIX server, please see the Security document in the Server Extension Resource Kit.

Single UNIX account per customer - Permissions Settings

The file listing below shows the location and permission settings for the FrontPage Server Extensions on a UNIX server when only a single UNIX account requires access to the FrontPage Web. The permissions do not allow for group Write access. Specifically, the file permissions are set accordingly:

644 (rw-r--r--) for files
755 (rwxr-xr-x) for directories
022 for the umask

Additional FrontPage Administrators and Authors may be added by using the Tools Permissions menu option in the FrontPage Explorer. Using this tool will not affect any UNIX file permissions.

Multiple UNIX accounts per customer - Permissions Settings

The following file listing shows the location and permission settings for the FrontPage Server Extensions on a UNIX server when multiple UNIX accounts require access to the same FrontPage Web. The permissions do allow for group Write access and assume that each individual UNIX account that requires access is a member of that group. Specifically, the file permissions are set accordingly:

664 (rw-rw-r--) for files
775 (rwxrwxr-x) for directories
002 for the umask

Additional FrontPage Administrators and Authors may be added by using the Tools Permissions command in the FrontPage Explorer. Using this tool will not affect any UNIX file permissions.
