In the process of migrating an established site to a new server. I used my SaaS versioning system (Beanstalk) to push the files to the new server. I seem to have run into a problem with ownership of directories and files, and permission levels for certain directories and files. I have shell access to my server and can recursively chmod/chown the directories and files. I'm looking for documentation on which dirs/files need to be owned by the server (or user nobody) and which dirs/files need special permissions. Version 2.4. Thank you for any help you can provide.
Sorry for the late reply. Basically the only files that need writing permissions are:
the whole directory, all files
only while using the default SilverStripe install routine, unless all database data have allready been entered.
Only if it exists. If it doesn't, Silverstripe will use the default tmp directory for its cache files
