A few months ago I migrated from Win 2000 to Windows Server 2008, which
is essentially a server version of Vista.
PmWiki runs exactly the way it did before ... or so I thought. Any files
that are uploaded via PmWiki are visible in PmWiki, but they are not
visible when I mount the server share on my desktop machine.
Files uploaded under Win2K give permissions to "Everyone" (that is a
Windows user group) while those uploaded under Win2008 do *NOT* give
permission to "Everyone".
This is a huge annoyance when trying to clean up upload directories,
because I can't just mount the share and start deleting. I now have to
make a VNC connection to the machine.
Note that if I drag-copy a file to the mounted share, it does get
Does anyone have a solution for this?
