All files on /var/www/ change ownership to www-data. Can it be avoided?
fr flag

All files on /var/www/ change ownership to www-data. Can it be avoided?

I have different files with different owners, starting from the /var/www/* directory. But once a day they change and appear as owner and group www-data.

I can't see why this happens. How can I disable this automatic change?
