ISPConfig virtual host /web directory set to 755 - is it safe?

    I am having some problems with rsync which I use to back up my ISPConfig server and all hosted sites from a local Linux machine. I am getting "Permission denied (13)" errors on my local machine for /web directories (the ones in which ISPConfig treats as a root folder for the virtual host).

    I have noticed that it's only possible to download these /client{n}/web{n}/web directories with rsync only when /web directory permissions are set to 755.

    Unfortunately, by default ISPConfig sets the /web directory to permissions to 710. Is that on purpose? Am I creating any vulnerabilities when setting the /web directory to 755?

    Ensure that you run your backup rsync as root.

    Off course that's on purpose.

    Safemode is a deprecated functon of PHP that does not exist anymore in recent PHP versions. ISPConfig uses the open_basedir restriction from PHP and it is set an enabled by default.
