chmod

(PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7)

chmodИзменяет режим доступа к файлу

Описание

bool chmod ( string $filename , int $mode )

Осуществляет попытку изменения режима доступа указанного файла на режим, переданный в параметре mode.

Список параметров

filename

Путь к файлу.

mode

Обратите внимание, что значение параметра mode не переводится автоматически в восьмеричную систему счисления, поэтому, чтобы удостовериться в том, что режим был установлен верно, предваряйте нулем (0) значение передаваемое в параметре mode. Строки, такие как "g+w", не будут работать должным образом.

<?php
chmod
("/somedir/somefile"755);   // десятичное, скорее всего, указано неверно
chmod("/somedir/somefile""u+rwx,go+rx"); // строка, неверный способ
chmod("/somedir/somefile"0755);  // восьмеричное, верный способ
?>

Значение параметра mode состоит из трех восьмеричных чисел, определяющих уровень доступа для владельца файла, для группы, в которую входит владелец, и для других пользователей, соответственно. Число, определяющее уровень пользователя, может быть вычислено путем суммирования значений, определяющих права: 1 - доступ на выполнение, 2 - доступ на запись, 4 - доступ на чтение. Сложите эти числа для указания нужного права доступа. Более подробно о системе прав в системах Unix вы можете узнать с помощью команд 'man 1 chmod' и 'man 2 chmod'.

<?php
// Доступ на запись и чтение для владельца, нет доступа для других
chmod("/somedir/somefile"0600);

// Доступ на запись и чтение для владельца, доступ на чтение для других
chmod("/somedir/somefile"0644);

// Полный доступ для владельца, доступ на чтение и выполнение для других
chmod("/somedir/somefile"0755);

// Полный доступ для владельца, доступ на чтение и выполнение для группы владельца
chmod("/somedir/somefile"0750);
?>

Возвращаемые значения

Возвращает TRUE в случае успешного завершения или FALSE в случае возникновения ошибки.

Примечания

Замечание:

Текущим пользователем является пользователь, от имени которого выполняется PHP. Возможно, что это будет не тот пользователь, под именем которого вы получаете доступ к командной оболочке или учетной записи FTP. На большинстве систем режим доступа к файлу может быть изменен только его владельцем.

Замечание: Эта функция неприменима для работы с удаленными файлами, поскольку файл должен быть доступен через файловую систему сервера.

Замечание:

При включенном безопасный режим PHP проверяет имеет ли файл или директория, с которой вы работаете, такой же UID (id владельца), как и выполняемый скрипт. Кроме того, вы не можете устанавливать SUID, SGID и "липкие" (sticky) биты.

BEWARE, a couple of the examples in the comments suggest doing something like this:

chmod(file_or_dir_name, intval($mode, 8));

However, if $mode is an integer then intval( ) won't modify it.  So, this code...

$mode = 644;
chmod('/tmp/test', intval($mode, 8));

...produces permissions that look like this:

1--w----r-T

Instead, use octdec( ), like this:

chmod(file_or_dir_name, octdec($mode));

BEWARE using quotes around the second parameter...

If you use quotes eg

chmod (file, "0644");

php will not complain but will do an implicit conversion to an int before running chmod. Unfortunately the implicit conversion doesn't take into account the octal string so you end up with an integer version 644, which is 1204 octal

In the previous post, stickybit avenger writes:
    Just a little hint. I was once adwised to set the 'sticky bit', i.e. use 1777 as chmod-value...

Note that in order to set the sticky bit on a file one must use '01777' (oct) and not '1777' (dec) as the parameter to chmod:

<?php
    chmod
("file",01777);   // correct
    
chmod("file",1777);    // incorrect, same as chmod("file",01023), causing no owner permissions!
?>

Rule of thumb: always prefix octal mode values with a zero.

Note that info at rvgate dot nl's chmodnum function produces INCORRECT results.  The resutls are base-10 numbers that only LOOK like they are octal numbers.  The function also ignores setuid, setgid and sticky bits, and will produce incorrect numbers if such a file is encountered.  Instead, this brute-force code works.  Maybe there is something more slick, but this isn't too CPU-intensive (note that it assumes you've error-checked that you indeed have a 10-character string!):

<?php
      $permissions
= 'drwxr-xr-x'// or whatever
     
$mode = 0;

      if (
$permissions[1] == 'r') $mode += 0400;
      if (
$permissions[2] == 'w') $mode += 0200;
      if (
$permissions[3] == 'x') $mode += 0100;
      else if (
$permissions[3] == 's') $mode += 04100;
      else if (
$permissions[3] == 'S') $mode += 04000;

      if (
$permissions[4] == 'r') $mode += 040;
      if (
$permissions[5] == 'w') $mode += 020;
      if (
$permissions[6] == 'x') $mode += 010;
      else if (
$permissions[6] == 's') $mode += 02010;
      else if (

Thanks for your code, "imoldgreg at o2 dot co dot uk". I am using it for an instalation script that has to CHMOD a bunch of files. I have found it faster to use the same connectino for each, as shown below.

<?php

// Thanks to "imoldgreg at o2 dot co dot uk" for the base 'CHMOD via FTP' script.

function chmod_open()
{
   
// Use your own FTP info
   
$ftp_user_name = 'chmod@XXXXXXXXX.com';
   
$ftp_user_pass = 'XXXXXXXXXX';
   
$ftp_root = '/';
   
$ftp_server = 'localhost';
   
$conn_id = ftp_connect($ftp_server);
   
$login_result = ftp_login($conn_id, $ftp_user_name, $ftp_user_pass);
    return
$conn_id;
}

function
chmod_file($conn_id, $permissions, $path)
{
    if (
ftp_site($conn_id, 'CHMOD ' . $permissions . ' ' . $ftp_root . $path) !== false)
    {
        return
TRUE;
    }
    else
    {
        return
FALSE;
    }
}

function
chmod_close($conn_id)
{
   
ftp_close($conn_id);
}

// CHMOD the required setup files

// Connect to the FTP
$conn_id = chmod_open();

// CHMOD each file and echo the results
echo chmod_file($conn_id, 777, 'master/cache/') ? 'CHMODed successfully!' : 'Error';
echo
chmod_file($conn_id, 777, 'master/files/') ? 'CHMODed successfully!' : 'Error';
echo
chmod_file($conn_id, 777, 'master/store/') ? 'CHMODed successfully!' : 'Error';
echo
chmod_file($conn_id, 766, 'master/config.php') ? 'CHMODed successfully!' : 'Error';
echo
chmod_file($conn_id, 777, 'master/images/avatars/upload/') ? 'CHMODed successfully!' : 'Error';

// Close the connection
chmod_close($conn_id);

?>

Here, the same FTP connection is used for each CHMOD command, making the execute time lower. This is essential for me, since my script is also copying a bunch of files.

if you want to chmod directories too, use this

<?php
$iterator
= new RecursiveIteratorIterator(new RecursiveDirectoryIterator($pathname), RecursiveIteratorIterator::SELF_FIRST);

foreach(
$iterator as $item) {
   
chmod($item, $filemode);
}
?>

an update to 'neil at 11 out of 10's code for changing mode using FTP.

changes: proper array added within the function (better for those of us who only need to connect to one ftp server) so only the mode and directory name need to be passed.

the octal added, for completeness and predictable stability.

<?php
function changemode($xcite)
{
$ftp_details = array(
ftp_user_name => 'username',
ftp_user_pass => 'password',
ftp_user_root => '/public_html/',
ftp_server => 'ftp.something.org'
);

$path = "public";
$mod = intval($xcite, 8);

  
// extract ftp details (array keys as variable names)
  
extract ($ftp_details);
  
  
// set up basic connection
  
$conn_id = ftp_connect($ftp_server);
  
  
// login with username and password
  
$login_result = ftp_login($conn_id, $ftp_user_name, $ftp_user_pass);
  
  
// try to chmod $path directory
  
if (ftp_site($conn_id, 'CHMOD '.$mod.' '.$ftp_root.$path) !== false) {
      
$success=TRUE;
   }
   else {
      
$success=FALSE;
   }

  
// close the connection
  
ftp_close($conn_id);
    return
$success;
}

?>

for those of you, like me, who were looking for a way to make an 'un-hackable' uploader, here's the closest i got, now for a field test, good luck!

I was trying to change permissions of a folder with chmod command with FTP connection. (I needed a writable folder to upload pictures with php)

I got the following respond:
"SITE CHMOD 777 uploads: command not understood"

The reason: Server is running under Windows system that does not allow to set file permissions via FTP. Conversely, the UNIX-running servers allow that.

Solutions:

1. If your web hosting provider has a web-based control panel that lets you set file permissions, then you need to login there and make changes.

2. It is possible to contact the hosting provider and ask them about this issue; maybe they can make the changes.

3. It is possible to change the hosting provider that has servers run on UNIX, and keep the site there.

For recursive chmod'ing both files and directories in one step you can use the function below. Note that this function has one argument for directory permissions and one for file permissions.
In this way you can apply the 'x' permission on directories, and skip it on directories. This function also skips links.

Example usage :

   chmod_R( 'mydir', 0666, 0777);

Makes all files and directories within mydir/ directory accessible for everyone, but doesn't make the files executable.

I guess for very deeply nested directories the recursion with php can become problematic, but I can be wrong because I never investigated this.

<?php
function chmod_R($path, $filemode, $dirmode) {
    if (
is_dir($path) ) {
        if (!
chmod($path, $dirmode)) {
           
$dirmode_str=decoct($dirmode);
            print
"Failed applying filemode '$dirmode_str' on directory '$path'\n";
            print
"  `-> the directory '$path' will be skipped from recursive chmod\n";
            return;
        }
       
$dh = opendir($path);
        while ((
$file = readdir($dh)) !== false) {
            if(
$file != '.' && $file != '..') {  // skip self and parent pointing directories
               
$fullpath = $path.'/'.$file;
               
chmod_R($fullpath, $filemode,$dirmode);
            }
        }
       
closedir($dh);
    } else {
        if (
is_link($path)) {
            print
"link '$path' is skipped\n";
            return;
        }
        if (!
chmod($path, $filemode)) {
           
$filemode_str=decoct($filemode);
            print
"Failed applying filemode '$filemode_str' on file '$path'\n";
            return;
        }
    }
}

If you cannot chmod files/directories with PHP because of safe_mode restrictions, but you can use FTP to chmod them, simply use PHP's FTP-functions (eg. ftp_chmod or ftp_site) instead. Not as efficient, but works.

about chmod,
Problably you have a local server to simulate your scripts before upload them to the server. No matter if you use Apache under windows or IIS ,  a chmod instruction like chmod($filename,O777) may not work because windows does not handle that kind of permission's format.
So being in your local server, if you have a only read file and you try to erase, it will show that you dont have permissions even when you have already executed your chmod instrucction correctly. Just up the script it must work well in your internet server if it is a linux machine

sobre chmod,
Probablemente usas un servidor local para probar tus scripts antes de subirlos al servidor en internet. No importa si usas Apache bajo windows o IIS, una instruccion como chmod(nombre_archivo,O777) podr no trabajar por que windows no maneja esa estructura para definir los permisos.
Estando en tu servidor local, si tienes un archivo de solo lectura y tratas de borrarlo,  se mostrar un error diciendo que no tienes permisos an despes de haber ejecutado chmod correctamente. Sube tu script, si tu servidor es una mquina linux, el script trabajar sin problemas en internet.

Well, you don't need octals.
You need a value that can easily computed and remembered if printed in octal.
511 (decimal) is the same as 777 (octal).
So it's the same wether you write
chmod("foo",511)
or
chmod("foo",0777)

The latter is just better readable.

[Editor's note:
That is due the fact Win32 systems treat premissions. You do not really have any other levels but read-only.

Maxim]


On WinME with apache chmod also works to a certain limit.

What happens is that apparently only the first number is counted, so 0666 (read-write) is the same as 0777, 0644, 0600, etc, and 0444 (read-only) is the same as 477, 400, etc.

..didn't test 0500 series
