A little background first: I'm doing some Drupal site-building on a Windows 7 machine. Drupal has an image module which, in short, allows for image caching. When you create an image style, the module creates a directory. For instance, if you create a style
my_image_style it will automatically create a folder
sites/default/files/img/styles/my_image_style/and/some/other/folders/beneath. However, the created directory has the owner:group
Administrators:System with permission
d--------+. Everything else, going all the way up to root is
chrisrockwell:None. Apache (this is a WAMP5 setup) is also
The Drupal module needs to create files in this directory, but cannot because of the permissions issue.
So, in this set-up, how to I specify what user:group a created directory belongs to?
I'm not sure if it has an effect, but I do mostly everything within cygwin (moving around, opening, vim).
Please let me know if you need additional information, or if this is better suited in another site.
UPDATE: If I chmod 777 the entire site directory, the only folder I get permission denied on is the image_style folder that is created by Drupal's script.
