I accidently changed the ownership and permissions of the folders in /home/ by extracting something there and now the websites don't work. Is there anyway to fix them back to there old state? Permissions right now are...

drwxr-x--- root.user user/

Comparing to other servers it should be...

drwxr-xr-x user.user user/

i helped a guy a few years ago who had chowned root.root to everything in /home/ ..I don't remember what I did you fix it but I want to say I found a script in /scripts that fixed it.

Searching your previous posts did yield a potentially useful thread:

imagine that ..someone else screwed up ownership on major folders with nested results.

I could have sworn there a script in /scripts will fix the /home onerships. fixhome or fixpublichtml or something like that. anyway ..YES this thread above should help.

Good luck!
