I've set up a VM with Debian7 for PHP development.
Since PHP needs to write to log files and the like, the www-data group needs write permissions on /var/www/...
I found a good answer here on superuser that makes it go real quick: http://superuser.com/a/19333
However, when I update a project with composer and new cache/log files are created, www-data does not have permission to write to them and I have to execute the last 2 commands again.
I was under the impression that setting permissions to 2775 meant that all future files would have the 775 permission? Or am I wrong about that? Is there a way to prevent having to reset the permissions every time or am I stuck having to do this?
Granted, it's not something that happens often, I'm just curious if there's a way to avoid it, other than setting up a cron job for it.
