View Full Version : Uploading PHP Scripts to Server Not As Root but User?

I was uploading some PHP scripts into a server where I have no root privilege but a normal user only, hence instead of root, I was marked as the owner of these script files. The scripts require a MySQL database and the database username and password have both been specified within an include file.

The question is - would the fact these scripts are owned by me instead of the root stop them from running correctly? If any, why?

Thanks for the help!
