What's the user permissions or ownership for anonymous users? Is your normal user a part of this group as well, for instance, most ftp servers will use the user and group ownership called simply ftp, is your normal user a part of the ftp group?

Did anyone ever figure this out? I got this error as well. I've tried adding my user to the apache and ftp groups, and vice-versa, giving my files 777 permissions, but nothing works...
