I don't think this is specific to centminmod, but it just so happens to cause me the most grief. Whenever I do a yum update on my server, the permissions for the /home/nginx/ user get reset to a lower permission than I need. I assume this is a security feature or something to protect users's home directories? I have the /home/nginx/domains/ directory set to group writable so that I can use another user in the "nginx" group to ftp and/or edit files in those directories, but I have to reset those permissions everytime I do an upgrade, or perhaps when a certain upgrade happens, not sure which. Is there a way to fix that, or do I have to possible run a cron routinely to set the correct permissions? I have a similar problem with a CentOS box (not centminmod) where the /var/lib/php directory is changed to be owned by root, and unwritable by anybody else, but /var/lib/php is the default directory for saved sessions in php.ini. So I have to reset that directory to be writable on every yum update, or I should just reassign that saved session directory, if I was smart.
