Hi Lars,

read + write by owner and group

execute by owner and group for directories

> (2) What are the right owner/group settings in this directory?

owned by www:www

> (3) Should each user have his own primary group (not the default on
> suse, where all users have users as the primary group)?

The filesystem authenticated permission setup (user belongs to group
www, files are owned by the user, and group owned by www, permissions
set to rw for og and sticky group bit set on directories) is
deprecated and to be phased out in future versions.
