Web based "kick" activity needs write permissions

         Key: MNT-1472
         URL: http://bugs.osuosl.org/browse/MNT-1472
     Project: Maintain
        Type: Task
  Components: Backend/Build Scripts, Frontend/Web Interface  
    Versions: 3.0    
    Reporter: Zack Bartel
 Assigned to: Michael Clay 
     Fix For: 3.0

When attempting to run the backend from the web interface, the www-data user does not have the necessary permissions to write to the filesystem (ie dhcpd.conf, dhcpd.conf.bak). The only good way that I can thinkto fix this would be to grant www-data write permission to the build dir. But that seems a little insecure to me. At least mention it in the module doc.
