CHMOD and Vista?

Problems with the Windows version of XAMPP, questions, comments, and anything related.

CHMOD and Vista?

Postby Jinxt » 26. February 2008 03:34

At first I thought I could just change the read/write permissions like in XP. Nope.

Then I went into all the advanced settings changing privileges all over to allow full access to the files no matter which user or which group was accessing. Nope.

Thought maybe I could run Filezilla server and connect to my own machine using an FTP client with a user that has full permissions and CHMOD the files like that. Nope.

So what small, insignificant detail am I completely oblivious to that will let me change the file permissions in a way that will make xampp see the files as chmodded to anything besides 0666? This is driving me up the flippin wall.

FileZilla Server doesn't understand the command "CHMOD" ("CHMOD" is not availible on Windows)

The only thing which Apache/PHP knows on Windows, is the "read-only attribute.

There is no execute permission in windows, if you can read a file and its an executable file type then that file is executable.

Sure, Windows NT (XP/Vista/2003) have this permission. But most OSS software (comming from Linux), like Apache or PHP, don't understand the Windows privileges system.
--> they only know the simple file attributes like hidden or read-only.
