    The AutoSSL script is a little heavy-handed when checking permissions/ownership of files. We use a custom SVN tool which runs as 'nobody' so all site files are: user=[site name] and group=nobody. This works fine for all things except the AutoSSL script, apparently because rather than checking if it has permissions to write a file in the user's folder, it checks to be sure the ownership of files is user=[site name] and group=[site name]. Even though AutoSSL would have permission, it fails because the ownership isn't what it expected.
    Are there plans to correct this or is it recommended to create a hook to modify the ownership of the files before and after AutoSSL runs? That seems like a messy solution so I'm very interested in an alternative.

    Hi @mallardglyder,

    Would you mind opening a ticket with Support so we can check this issue for you? Allowing us to investigate the setup would let us see if there are any issues or improvements that could be addressed with AutoSSL.

    Thanks,

    Sure I can create a ticket. I just thought it is more of a wishlist item and not a specific support request.
    See request #8961631
    Thanks William!
