Previous Apache2 version: 2.2.8 (Jun 25 2008)
Current Apache2 version: 2.2.10 (Feb 12 2012)

In 2.2.8 I set permissions to 600 for files, 700 for directories, uid=nobody, group=nogroup

In 2.2.10 I need to set permissions to 644 for files and 755 for directories to get the web site to work.

I thought I would ask you guys if you know anything about this. I am a little worried about changing the permissions like that.

It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
