What now?
well, we don’t know, as far as we are aware Wesley Wolfie is issuing the DMCA notice to Multiplay (who host bukkit and bukkit’s download links (reference)).

I believe that Spigot will continue to update there builds but are in the same boat as bukkit, but that it is ok for them to do so as it is not Wolfie’s Intention to stop the modding of bukkit but to protect mojang from using his code in their develpments of bukkit as he was unaware that mojang had aqquired bukkit and he was no longer working for an open source project and was now working for mojang essentially for free.

Raspberry Pi – PHP permission File Problems Solved!

I recently installed php, but when I was unable to save files, I was very stuck, and that’s why I’m posting it here, I want to tell anyone who Googles this problem to find this solution.

 

The problem was when I used an fopen and fsave within php, the file would always ‘die’ as in the open or die within php. The solution is below

Firstly I looked for the Environment user in phpinfo() in my case it was
[box type=”shadow”]www-data[/box]
and then I simply typed this
[box type=”shadow”]chmod 777 -R www-data /var/www[/box]
that, in its simplicity is the solution, but I am thankful that I have found the solution!

To create a phpinfo you need to create a file in your root and insert the following code

and save it as phpinfo.php or whatever you choose, I saved it in my root but you can save it wherever you want, then I browsed to the environments section and that gave me the necessary information for me to create the solution.

Why this works

The problem was that php did not have enough permissions to write to the folder. by giving the user www-data full permission i.e. 777 it can now read write and execute without a problem!

here is what php looks like when you do phpinfo
