One or more files could not to be uploaded

I upgraded ojs to ojs3.4. My PHP version is 8.3.4.
I counter by an error in uploading files when PHP is fpm. As i set it to FCGID, there is no problem. It is the reverse of my other journals.
PHP log is :
Failed to open stream: Permission denied in /home/reapress/domains/ceai.reapress.com/public_html/lib/pkp/classes/file/FileManager.php on line 185

Hi there @Jpour_Mail

It seems you may have a permission problem. Check if your webserver can write your OJS ‘files_dir’ and cache dirrectory.

Hi @Jpour_Mail,

Just to add a little bit of detail to @hilongo’s excellent advice –

Depending on how your server runs PHP scripts, PHP may end up running as a different user account. If you’re running PHP using mod_php, for example, scripts often run under the www-data user account. With FPM, it’s likelier that you’re running in a setuid environment, where scripts run under your own user account (e.g. on a shared server).

It’s necessary to know a little about how your server is configured in order to properly set file permissions, so I’d suggest consulting your phpinfo page. OJS doesn’t have any special requirements for file permissions – it just needs to be able to work with the contents of the files_dir.

I have changed the /home/reapress/domains/ceai.reapress.com/public_html/public/site/images/admin to 0777. then did not face the error.
in other journal with the equal configuration for php, i did not change this permission.

Hi @Jpour_Mail,

777 permissions are never a good idea to run in production; you probably have to figure out file ownership, not just numeric permissions.

I changed the ownership to Administration username of parent server. The problem was be solved.
Thanks alot
