Database connection problem

Reported by: snookie Owned by: ctsai
Keywords: PEND Cc:
Private: no

Description

Yesterday, attending the recommendations issued by the support team, I changed the permissions for my secret files, disabling the "read" privileges to "others". Everything was working until today. I realized that there was a "Can't connect to database" error, and I had to enable them again

Hello,

What project is this for?

Thanks,

I just removed "read" privileges to "other" on the files with db configuration information in them, and your project web space still seems to be working.

Am I missing something here?

Thanks,

It's kinda weird. The first time I changed the permissions, everything worked fine, but the next day there was a database connection problem so I had to change them back. Now it's working like you said, so I don't know if this was related to some kind of strange behavior due to the recent migration which is somehow gone now. I will be paying attention these days if something unexpected happens but for now the problem seems fixed. Thank you!
