    Hi,
    I use WHMCS to manage client accounts.

    Today on a server with mod_suid2 a clients .htaccess would not work.

    The public_html was client:nobody 750

    I changed the public_html to client:client 750 and the .htaccess worked.


    So is the public_html meant to be setup client:nobody or client:client?
    If client:nobody is correct why did changing nobody to client fix the .htaccess issue?


    Thank you.

    Hello :)

    Is this only happening when you create accounts through WHMCS, or do experience the same issue when creating accounts through Web Host Manager directly?

    Thank you.

    Hi,
    it happens both ways.
    I just looked at an account I set up manually about 24 hours ago and it was created
    client:nobody 750 (public_html)

    Best I can tell this is happening on both servers with mod_ruid2

    Just realised maybe you meant about the .htaccess not working and not the ownership. If so I have not tested the .htaccess on an account created manually but I can if you wish.

    The permissions and ownership values that you have reported for the public_html directory are standard. If you continue to receive an error related to the .htaccess file when mod_ruid2 is enabled, please post the exact error message you are receiving and see if it also happens when creating an account through Web Host Manager directly.

    Thank you.

    Thanks for the replies.

    I will do as asked above.
    But just so you know when this was occurring there were no error messages in the Apache error log.
