Hey Guys,

This server I have 40+ SilverStripe installs running on, having never seen this error before I'm a little lost.

To know my process: I extracted SilverStripe247Installer.tar.gz as root, chmod -R 755 *, chown -R myuser, chgrp -R myuser, chmod 777 .htaccess, chmod 777 mysite/_config.php

The error I'm getting in apache log:

SoftException in Application.cpp:350: UID of script "public_html/sapphire/main.php" is smaller than min_uid

Any ideas welcome.

Additionally I have just run chown -R myuser:myuser *, that hasn't worked either.

If you have root access, that's best, try to run SSH command:

chown -R user:user /home/user/public_html/

This works.
