    I have a virtual host dedicated ot one SugarCRM CE 6.2.4 install. I keep getting minor permission issues which I can't see the origin of.

    VH settings:

    ExtApp Set UID Mode DocRoot UID

    The owner of the docroot is lsadm:lsadm

    So based on that simple info, I understand LSWS executes this PHP script as lsadm and should therefore have write access to folders owned by lsadm. But it's not.

    2011-11-02 10:45:03.887 [ERROR] [HTAccess] Failed to open [/home/websites/]: Permission denied


    -rw-r--r-- 1 lsadm lsadm 0 Nov 2 10:28 .htaccess

    Even if I chmod to 755

    -rwxr-xr-x 1 lsadm lsadm 0 Nov 2 10:28 .htaccess

    The same issue remains.

    So why am I getting these issues?

    lsadm is used to access lsws admin console:)7080) by design, not intended for normal websites(port 80).

    if litespeed is running as nobody user, change the document owner to nobody.

    #chown -R nobody:nobody /home/websites/

    do something like
    it is possible user lsadm does not have any permission on one of the parents.

    So is there an advantage to making doc root UID nobody for all vhosts, or would you advise they are unique for each vhost?

    I have lke 12 vhosts in:


    All lsadm:lsadm
