I have nginx + spawn cgi and php set, nginx and spawn cgi run as nobody, my web files are in folder that root created and now i get "403 Forbidden" error and thats probably because of permissions, should i add new user and group and put files there and run nginx etc with that user? if so what permissions should i set?
