User www-data

Hallo - this is probably a simple issue, and it is more a matter of Linux administration than of Grav: but I would like to hear some advice. In my Linux distribution (xubuntu 16.04) php runs under user www-data. Which option is better: change the ownership of the grav directory (give it to www-data) or change the user under which php runs (which I’d have to figure out how to do)? Thanks for any tip.


Hi, the permissions doc should give you enough explanation on this matter.

Thanks much - I had actually seen it, then forgot it . thanks for reminding me!
