How to fix PHP upload file inherit permissions error using Windows IIS Server

1 1 1 1 1 How to fix PHP upload file inherit permissions error using Windows IIS Server5.00Rating 5.00 (907 Votes)

If you’re like me, and you use Windows IIS, you’ve spent hours trying to figure out why your uploaded file won’t inherit the permissions needed to display correctly. Luckily, the answer is extremely easy and something most people would have never thought of.

The problem only happens when you use PHP to upload a file. When you upload a file, PHP sends the file to a temporary directory on the hard drive (for me it is C:\Windows\Temp) and then copies it over to it’s intended directory. Once the file has landed in the temporary directory, it is assigned the permissions of that directory. The problem is when Windows copies that file, it keeps the temporary directory’s permissions and doesn’t inherit your web directory’s permissions.

Fixing Magento error "[unknown object].fireEvent()"

error: error in [unknown object].fireEvent():
event name: address_country_changed
error message: zipElement.up(...).down(...) is undefined

Regarding to this forum post, this has something to do with defining the zip code as not required filed in the database. Specialists recommend to set zip code as required filed in the database and then setting it as not required on the country basis. But people report that setting so will still not make zip code as optional field.

So I decided to do my own fix. Here it is:

As you probably know, the updates that were intended for postponed PHP 6 were added to PHP 5.4.0 instead, so now PHP includes a huge set of new language features and removes several legacy behaviors.
