FreePBX Distro 220.127.116.11
I added a /tftproot directory to my FreePBX server, configured ftp, and added a user for my Polycom IP phones. The phones need RW access to some files in /tftproot.
I created a freepbx_chown.conf file and blacklisted /tftproot.
I added the /tftproot directory to a FreePBX backup. When the backup is run, it appears to use tar’s --group and --owner options to change ownership of everything in /tftproot to asterisk:asterisk.
Result: I can’t use the backup file made by FreePBX to restore /tftproot because the IP phones would lose write access in /tftproot. I have to make an independent backup of /tftproot and restore from that.
I’m curious what the rationale is for forcing file ownership to asterisk:asterisk in directories that are “foreign” to FreePBX .
