nginx+Debian Squeeze+ISPCFG3 permission problem
Hi there,

I followed this tutorial:

It seems ISPCFG3 by default gives these permissions to the web folder:


drwx--x--- 8 web1 client2  4096 Jan  8 16:08 web
which results in my nginx logs being full of these:

2013/01/11 09:48:08 [crit] 27109#0: *5 open() "/var/www/" failed (13: Permission denied), client:, server:, request: "GET / HTTP/1.0", host: "", referrer: ""
If I however manually do a

chmod -R 755 web/
those errors are gone. This last until I change something in my vhost config via the ISPCFG panel and its back.

Are the defaults wrong or is this just me having a problem?

P.S: the vhost is running a wordpress site.

It's safe to ignore these nginx warnings.
