I wrote this list before on this issue: http://drupal.org/node/166557;
but, received no response. Decided to re-pose the question.
The problem is that I'm getting the "access denied" error on file upload
even though the file is uploaded. This is because user_access('upload
files') is failing for a user who, in fact, has this permission in this
I did the following:
1. Modified user_access() function to NOT cache the $perm permissions.
2. Deleted records from cache_menu.
I don't know which (if not both) of the above did the trick, but it
resolved the issue. That means (I think) it's a cache problem.
I know I can use cache_clear_all() to delete items from cache_menu.
However, I would like know if it's possible to delete/modify the static
$perm variable that is set in the user_access() function OUTSIDE of that
That is: The user_access() function sets a static variable $perm =
array(). Permissions are cached in this variable. Can I create a
function in my module that can update the $perm variable that is set in
the user_access() function of the node.module?
Thanks for any assistance.
