why do files need to be world readable for Apache to server them?
I would think that if they are owned buy the Apache user or group. And the files are readable and executable that would allow Apache to server the files.
How are request to Apache handled. Are they assigned user guest or nobody, or does Apache own the requests.
Any documentation, other then the basic how to change user groups and permission would be nice. My problem is not changing permission but understanding how requests are handled and why the files need to be world readable.
