Problem using created directories using mkdir
#1

I am working on uploading photos and love the CI libraries to help, but I am having a little problem I hope someone can help.

I create a folder for each user so in my script I check to see if that folder exists and if not use mkdir to create it. mkdir creates the directory with the owner of 'apache', with permissions of 777.

[[email protected] photos]# ls -la user/1
total 8
drwxrwxrwx 2 apache apache 4096 Sep 7 09:58 .
drwxrwxrwx 3 opti4 apache 4096 Sep 7 09:58 ..

CI returns FALSE from function is_really_writable() when I try to upload the photo. It is because the owner is 'apache' and not 'opti4' who is the user of this virtual host. I am not sure why the 777 permission is not enough. If I change the owner to 'opti4' then it works fine. Problem is CI will not allow me to run chown when I create the directory so I cannot change the owner.

How can I create a directory on the fly and use it with CI?
