    For some reason I cannot view any of the mail in anyones mailbox. I am using roundcube but nothing shows up. I did change the permissions of the /var/www/ folder to 775. What does the permission of the user maildir need to be?

    Roundcube does not access any mailbox or maildir directly, please do not change the permissions as this might mess up your system and undo the changes you have done already.

    Please make sure that you have the maildir checkbox enabled, if you use courier or dovecot as mailserver.

    I do have the maildir checkbox enabled. The problem is that I have already changed the permissions to 775 xD. Are those the correct permissions? And if not what is the command that I should use to change them to what they should be?

    Till, I was searching the forums and came across this thread

    You said to do the following SQL command

    UPDATE isp_isp_web SET status = 'u' WHERE status = '';
    and then update ispconfig using quota for example and that would restore the permissions.

    Just wanted to let you know that it fixed the problem. I now know to change the owner on the web*/web folder and not the entire var/www/ folder =)

    P.S. what is the group that you were talking about? I didn't know there was one so I just created my own and chowned the web directory.
