Subject [users@httpd] [apache2] Which owner and group for htdocs files ?
Date Sun, 01 Feb 2004 18:10:04 GMT

I would like to know which user owns your files in htdocs ? Should I use 
root ?

On my debian (woody) it looks like this by default :

/var/www/apache2-default# ls -ll
total 148
-rw-r--r--    1 root     root         1663 May 20  2002
/var/www/apache2-default# grep www /etc/passwd

Should the user www-data be the owner of htdocs files ?
