RE: Re: DB logs in db/ directory and group permission

I am allowing all three supported forms of access, and I found that it is best to make all dirs in a repository setgid. e.g.

$ find parent-path-of-repos -type d -ls | xargs chmod g+s

I had a situation where I had to setgid the dirs under repos/dav , not just repos/db .

I imagine you want the server process to use a sensible umask. Also you
should run chmod g+s on the repository's db/ area. Take a look at the
grey box on this page:
