    I noticed when a users docroot doesn't exist (renamed or deleted for what ever reason) and /usr/local/cpanel/bin/build_apache_conf is run to regenerate the apache config it creates a new docroot for the user:

    info [build_apache_conf] Creating missing document root /home/myuser/public_html for myuser

    The permissions for the new docroot seem to be different compared to the defaults for the public_html folder for new accounts. The build_apache_conf made docroot has 755 permission and is owned by the same user/group. On a new account that is created public_html has 750 permissions and is owned by the user but the group is nobody.

    I believe the docroot created by build_apache_conf should also be the same permissions, 750, is there any way I can correct this?
