Permission denied from normal users


My problem:
I cannot access certificates from normal users. I already tried to set the permissions from everything in /etc/letsencrypt to 744, but it doesn’t help. When I’m doing ‘ls -l’ in the root user, it says the permissions are correct, but normal user accounts still can’t access it.

My operating system is (include version): Debian 3.16.39-1+deb8u2

My web server is (include version): apache2

I can login to a root shell on my machine (yes or no, or I don’t know): yes

I’m using a control panel to manage my site (no, or provide the name and version of the control panel): no


Hello @m8Flo,

The question is… why?. Normal users shouldn’t need access to them, there is no problem that users could access certificates but never should be able to read private keys, you know, security reasons ;).

By the way, if you change perms for dirs and files to 744 it won’t work, you should change perms to 744 for files and 755 for dirs, but as I said, you shouldn’t do this, what are you trying to achieve?.
