FAQ
hello all - first time posting.

i am trying to run node.js from an account called "foo" and wish to write
into an area in the bar.com area:

/home/bar.com/public_html/openDirectory/

i am trying to use mkdirp and am getting the following error:

   process.setuid(555) ; // 555 is foo's UID
   mkdirp( '/home/bar.com/public_html/openDirectory' , function(err) {


{ [Error: EACCES, mkdir '/home/bar.com/public_html/openDirectory']
   errno: 3,
   code: 'EACCES',
   path: '/home/bar.com/public_html/openDirectory' }


mkdirp works fine for me when i run as root or when i write into foo's
area, but when i try to mkdirp in another users area, i get the EACCESS
error.

the /home/bar.com/public_html/openDirectory area is set up with 777
protection:

drwxrwxrwx 1 bar.com bar.com 4096 Nov 18 12:34 openDirectory

i was tempted to look into seeing if i could temporarily grant the node
process root privilege, but wanted to run the issue by some others first.

any suggestions for a first-time posting?
