>Hardening OI Directory File permissions


Several of you have recently asked for details about ‘Hardening File permissions on the OpenInsight Directory’. I am pleased to announce the publication of a comprehensive knowledge base article that details this topic.

Locking down file level permissions on the OpenInsight directory is an important step to ensuring the stability of your application. Improper permissions can allow users to change or delete files – accidentally or intentionally. The ‘Hardening File permissions on the OpenInsight Directory’ Knowledge Base article provides guidelines to secure your OpenInsight directory.

Examples of securing the application at the share level and file level are provided within the article. Each example begins with the creation of the destination directory followed by installing OpenInsight into the newly created location. Establishing the destination directory permissions before installation ensures that the administrator installing the application will have rights to modify it later.
