The Restore Initial Configuration Tool
allows you to restore permissions on the special folders of your web space. This article specifies which are the system default folders, the special folders, and the procedure to be followed to restore their initial configuration.
The web space default folders
are the following:
The special folders are
cgi-bin: read and execute permissions
The folder can contain files that require executable permissions, e.g. CGI (written in Perl) and some PHP files. It doesn’t have any write permissions but the files it contains are accessible via Browser.
mdb-database: write permissions
The folder must contain the Databases. It can’t be accessed via Browser, therefore, the pages it may contain can’t be accessed and the Databases can’t be downloaded.
Public: read and write permissions
The folder can contain all the files you need to write on, perform handling operations via script, create files on-the-fly using the supported languages; forums, guestbooks, meters and the like that use a text file to be edited should be placed in this folder, or subfolders, or the write output must be directed to this folder.
App_Data: write permissions
The App-Data folder is the default folder to place all data sources in the framework . For example, if you want to use an application (a forum) for data storage, you must use this folder, which has the same configuration as the mdb-database folder (the files it contains are therefore not directly accessible via Browser). It can be used for all devices (e.g. MDB, XML, text files), excluding MDF files (SQL Server files).
To restore the initial configuration, log into the Control Panel
with your Authentication Codes
(Login@aruba.it and Password), select "Windows Hosting
" from the left-side menu and click "Restore Configuration
In the window that appears, click the "Restore Permissions and Frontpage Extensions
The customization and changes made to the permissions on the folders of the domain will be lost, therefore, before you proceed we recommend making a Backup of the permissions via the specific function
: File Manager Permission Backup
