    Hi, I'm trying to verify a new site in google webmaster tools.
    The verification file keeps returning a 404.

    I found this in the Apache error logs whenever I try to access the file directly or verify the ownership.

    [Wed Apr 09 12:04:07.077406 2014] [core:error] [pid 26528] [client 66.xx.xx.xx:48123] Caught race condition abuser. attacker: 513, victim: 0 open file owner: 0, open file: /home/ntt/public_html/googlebaxxxxxxxxxxx.html

    The cause was the verification file was owned by root.
    Changed ownership to the account name and it was okay.

    thanks.
