You came here with a file ownership issue. I explained very calmly that our PHP-based software runs inside PHP itself which determines the file ownership. Remember that this is the ONLY thing you had asked me at this point.
Your reply was and I quote:
I will not try to debate whose responsibility it is to set the proper ownership of a file that is created by UNiTE.
Do you understand how that reads? It tells me that you don't know or care about how your server, the Docker container that you set up yourself, works. You are going to irrationally blame me for your wrong configuration. I explained once again how PHP works, something that is objectively outside the scope of our support.
It would be merely offensive if it stopped there. You then continue to change your question into something different, telling me about the content of the .htaccess content pretending that I said that this was outside the scope of our support. No, I didn't. I had only replied to the ownership because it wasn't right and it was caused by a server issue. Without this resolved I couldn't tell you anything more. I was also not told before what are its contents, which is very important for understanding your issue. Despite that, I did explain how UNiTE works and the conditions under which your issue could occur.
Before calling me a bully, after I have already helped you with your issue, please take a moment to assess your behaviour to me. I replied in a FAR LESS offensive tone than yours and only AFTER answering your question. If that makes me a bully, what does your behaviour and your doubling down on calling me names and making wrongful allegations make you?
As for your allegations about my behaviour, please let me say this. I know what I know and I know what I don't know. I do NOT expect people to know everything I do and I DO NOT talk people down just because they don't share my very particular domain-specific knowledge. When people are willing to learn more I go out of my way to help them, despite being outside the scope of our support. When people are behaving like entitled jerks, belittling me, being sarcastic, having irrational demands, retroactively misinterpreting my replies based on information they didn't share in advance or call me names I will respond in kind — after trying to address their technical issue.
In short, your experience of an interaction with me depends solely on how you treat me. It's called reciprocity.
If you are truly interested in resolving your issue, I am here to hold a further technical discussion. Let me remind you the relevant technical help points I made in my previous replies:
If I were to make an educated guess, I would say that your UNiTE run did not finish successfully. This would explain why the stealth .htaccess file is left behind. So, let's take it from there and please treat me the way you'd like to be treated.
