environment.rb and passenger mod

Added by Erwin Mueller about 6 years ago

Hello,
I'm using the passenger mod for redmine, and I wonder, do you need that the file environment.rb is owned by www-data (the apache user)?

Because I unpacked the redmine archive, all files are root owned. When I try to open the redmine site I get the attached error*. The permissions looks like that**. As you can see the file have read permissions. Only if I change the ownership redmine will work. (adding write permissions is not working, you have to change the ownership).

Can someone explain why you need apache-user ownership for that file?

This is related to a feature of Passenger instead of an issue of Redmine. It is well documented in the outstanding Passenger documentation.
