Permissions Screwed Up?

A customer reported something strange happening to his account earlier today.

We’ve tried everything we know of here. Everything is CHMOD’d to 777 (just to test) and CHOWN’d to his user name, but still nothing gives.

Any ideas?

Is there an .htaccess file being used here at all? Is the DirectoryIndex directive being overridden OR is there not a index.[html|php|htm] etc file in the document root?


Is .htaccess doing anything wierd?

There is an index.php in there.

There is no .htaccess

Few more things to check.

  1. Is the docroot and every directory from /home to the docroot at least 711 perms.

  2. Is the php module loaded in apache?
