I seem to have corrupted the group for an entire site. I have no idea what I touched in Virtualmin that would do this....or if the man who is working on setting up the OCPortal PHP site in this site touched something in his CMS settings that could do this to the entire site (I don't think so...)
at any rate... I get a forbidden response from Apache for a site that yesteryday was working fine (fortunately not in production yet)
The normal pattern virtualmin uses is to set the group to be the exact same name as the owner.
well, that's what we had two days ago... the folder /home/apples/
was owned by apples and group was apples
but today I see owner: apples group 516 (blink, huh? what happened)
and if I try to go to www.applesaregood.com I get
OK, so I thinking I must have been asleep and definitely do not do any coding or website configuration during lunar eclipses because if you are bad with documentation you may never remember what you did, ever.
I tried to fix this, acting as root from terminal:
(home)% chown -R apples:apples applesattempt to change group from 516 to for all directories and files in that folder....
but linux replies:
chown: ` apples:apples': invalid group
oops... I'm out of my depth on this one.
