We all know with PHP and other programs that need the right file permissions in order to overwrite the file and store in DB.
But what about with ordinary HTML files created from scratch in an FTP program...and don't require other programs to overrite them. Only manual overwrite while i'm connected to FTP. And the file contents of these pages are just very basic HTML and nothing else.
I've got conflicting data on whether or not THESE must be owned by the domain user as well....or if they could be owned by Root and still viewed correctly by all on the internet.
example, I like created files with WinSCP...but unfortunately their always created as a Root file with root permissions.
With every browser I view these Root files in, they show up completely fine. But some people say they should be changed to the domain user permission name...as they could cause some browser viewing issues.
I figure what's the difference if i'm the only one (Root) overwriting these files...It shouldn't cause any viewing issues from my ordinary visitors right ?
