CentOS 6 could not update ICEauthority file /var/lib/gdm.ICEauthority


In the CentOS 6 distribution I'm getting an error "could not update ICEauthority file /var/lib/gdm.ICEauthority"
Previously I've changed the permission by "chmod 775 /var/www" and I've also added the new user after rebooting this error occurs.
Mouse and keybord are frozen, I can't do anything with them, so Ctrl+Alt+ F do not work as well.
What can I do?

Is the ICEAuthority within your user directory? If so, it should be owned by your user and in the default group for that user, where the default group is typically the same as the user name. That's the normal case.
