    Hi all

    My development setup is as follows:

    Mac OS X with Server running. All my web sites I am working on are located within a folder under /Users/johncogan/Sites/Php/

    So acme website would be /Users/johncogan/Sites/Php/acme/

    I have File Sharing turned on in server with Sites set as shared with Read/Write access to user 'Everyone', under Settings both AFB and SMB are ticked
    Under System Pref-> Sharing, File Sharing is also ticked with Sites also shared as above. Option shows AFP and SMB also ticked.

    I can browse the development website without issue and also browse the website folders and files from my windows machine.

    I then start to edit a file (Using PHPStorm on Windows 7) and save it and then I get a Internal 500 error for that file when I refresh the browser. The page will now only show if I navigate on the mac to the website folder and right click and choose get info.

    I then have to turn Read and Write to Read only and back to Read and Write, under Sharing and Permissions and then "Apply to enclosed items..." before this will show in the browser.

    This is becoming a bit of a pain because I have to do it between each edit and save of the file.

    Is there any way I can get this to be Read/Write all the time so I can simply get on with my work instead of fighting the security?

    Many thanks

    Additional note

    Special note: If I edit files on the mac itself, the issue does not occur, only when editing from Windows. Also when the error occurs if I review the shares and permissions on the mac they are unchanged visibly from "Get info" or under System Prefs.
