permissions on public_html affecting http/https differently?
I was attempting to allow several users to share a common code base in /home/mainuser/public_html. I created a group and added the needed users, then changed the above public_html so its entire contents were owned by mainuser:mynewgroup, and privs 755 for folders, 644 for files.
After I made this change my website stopped working over https (http worked fine). I attempted to revert the permissions changes but apparently failed... now the site works only on https and not http.
When I say "stopped working" I mean the page reports a 500 internal server error.
Does anyone know which permissions might cause a server error over https and not over http (or vice-versa)?
Thanks in advance!!
