    I'm running ISPConfig on Fedora Core 5.
    I have another Fedora installation which I will use for backup.

    In ISPConfig all dirs under /var/www is owned by web1/2/3....

    I connect to the ISPConfig server with the user "john". But "john" hasn't access to the /var/www folders. I get the message: "rsync: opendir "/var/www/web1/ftp/incoming" failed: Permission denied (13)" on all dirs.

    I have tried to:
    usermod -G apache/root john

    but continue to get the samme error
    Anyone who has a solution? Thx

    You must add john to the correct groups. If a folder is owned by web1, then you must add john to the web1 group, not the Apache group.

    Or you could run it as root...
