Description Dave Miller 2002-06-27 11:28:34 EDT
We have a group of people who edit web pages...  we have /var/www/html set as
owned by root, group is webadmins, permissions are 2775.

Installing apache-1.3.22-6 reset the permissions on /var/www/html so that the
group was root and the permissions were 755.  This effectively locked out our
webadmins from being able to create any new files or rename files at the top
level on the website.
