If you restore a site using cPanel or JetBackup and get the 403 Access Denied error there is a chance that the group ownership is set incorrectly. Ownership of the public_html files needs to be accountusername:nobody and not accountusername:accountusername.

To fix the group permissions, run the following command:

chown -v username:nobody /home/username/public_html

Other Examples:

  • On a mounted volume: chown -v overhaulics:nobody /mnt/home2/overhaulics/public_html
