I'm generally talking about files under a domain name and in /httpdocs/ ...and with general 644 permissions throughout.
As long as it's not a dynamically controlled file (by php , mysql or other) ....and as long as it's just a basic html file.... It shouldn't matter whether the file is owned by the FTP owner or owned by Root.. ?
that's basically what I mean. In my 10 years of doing this, i've never had a permission denial error (in any browser) when trying to view such file...as long as it's a basic html file.
If it's a forum or other type of database file in which apache/php needs access to to automatically change....I could understand in those instances.. But if it's an ordinary .html file i'm trying to change using a FTP client...whether I change it in Root or with the separate FTP owner permissions.... These files shouldn't ever have a problem displaying to ordinary visitors, regardless of their browser. Correct ?
