Replied to Log Permission Denied

thank you for the response.

lemme try first. I will update soon I got the result.

how can you find or set your webserver user "www"? actually I dont even know, is mine "www" or "www-data"

Replied to Log Permission Denied

Sorry, I didnt give more information about the application.

I use laravel 5.5 for this application, there is no Logging Config File in app.

"You can put root and www-data in the same group then make the logfile group writable?" Even, I put the cron inside

cron -u www-data -e

still, the log that created by the Cron contains "root" name..

Started a new Conversation Log Permission Denied

I have my Web Application host in Linux by Nginx. there is some process running:

  1. Queue job triggered by dispatch.
  2. Cron to the scheduler that runs every minute.

Logging Configuration is Daily. And inside bootstrap/app.php I configure this

$app->configureMonologUsing(function(Monolog\Logger $monolog) {
    $filename = storage_path('logs/laravel-'.php_sapi_name().'-'.get_current_user().'.log');
    $handler = new Monolog\Handler\RotatingFileHandler($filename);

Every day the log created with "root" name from get_current_user(). and every new day, if the new log file created by Cron, the Queue job will not work because Permission Denied writing the log file.

I tried to fix, by adjusting the Cron by installing as www-data user install inside

crontab -u www-data -e

by the log file still, create with "root" name.

and then I tried inside the Cron command, I add

* * * * * -u www-data php /directory/to/my/application/artisan schedule:run

the only solution that I know for now, only change the permission to 755 every day or every time the error occurred.

is there any other solution?
