I’m using a 4TB WD My Cloud model number WDBCTL0040HWT-NESN.
For a web app project I would like my PHP application to have access to a data folder on the My Cloud, but this doesn’t seem to work. With my normal user account that I’m logged in with (ruben) I do have access to the folder. On my Macbook I can access the folder from the terminal by cd-ing into /Volumes/Public/Work and I can access the files in Finder as well.
From my web application basic file operations don’t work and I think it’s because of a permissions issue.
Apache is running under the _www user account, but I can’t simply chmod the Public folder to allow this user access. Is there any other way I can make a folder accessible to every user?
The UI tools that came with the My Cloud don’t seem to have this option either.
