All my apps seem to be 403ing, and I see this in the shell:

[blake8086@web65 ~]$ ll

drwx------ 3 root      root      4096 Aug 12 20:28 webapps

It seems like root shouldn't control any of those directories. I noticed this on the 18th. How do I gain ownership of those files?

The webapps directory should always be owned by root -- that's normal. However, it should have 755 permissions, not 700, which indicates some more fundamental problem. Please open a support ticket and we'll be happy to fix the permissions and see what went wrong.

Hope that helps!
