correct me if I'm wrong...having the folder public_html owned by user:nobody is a result of running /scripts/enablefileprotect ?

If this is correct...or in any case...

I have a perl script running as a file manager in the cgi-bin. Suddenly the upload function of this script has stopped functioning (maybe after enabling fileprotect) complaining about wrong directory permissions. I have tried all the possible permissions (chmod) but still the upload does not work. I have reinstalled the script (new and older version) but I still get the error.

Could this error be related to the fact that fileprotect has been enabled?

Any ideas? Thank you very much.
