Hi,

Please make sure that the apache user has read/write rights in /usr/local/etc/yate where subscribers.conf is located.

You can run as root:
chmod a+rw /usr/local/etc/yate/

Also, make sure you don't have selinux or something similar that prevents apache to access other parts of the file system.

Hi,

You should enable the displaying of errors in php.ini:

display_errors = On
error_reporting = E_ALL | E_STRICT

Check on google if your distro has selinux or something similar.

You can run as root:
chmod a+rw /usr/local/etc/yate/


No, don't do that. If you need the yate-user and the apache-user to access this file, create a new group e.g. apacheyate, put both users in that group and give that group permission to change the file. if you use a+rw then everybody can modify the file and you don't want that e.g. if you have several users who can access the server or your server gets hacked.


Should work like this:
Code: [Select]
// add group
addgroup  apacheyate

// add existing users for apache and yate to that group
useradd -G apacheyate apache
useradd -G apacheyate yate

// give group access to the file
chgrp apacheyate /usr/local/etc/yate where subscribers.conf

// give group permission on the file
chmod g+rw /usr/local/etc/yate where subscribers.conf

// remove write for all other users that are not owner of or in same group as file
chmod a-wx /usr/local/etc/yate where subscribers.conf
