Very happy to see your response :)

I ve got the message as follows in my command line:

*[root@praveena ~]# chown www-user /path/to/document/root
chown: `www-user': invalid user
[root@praveena ~]# chown www-data /path/to/document/root
chown: `www-data': invalid user

*NOTE: I ve not given the default PREFIX path while configuring the httpd
home directory.*
