Actually, only the twiki/{data,pub} dirs are owned by httpd. I've put some 
lines on fixperms.sh to force this ownership because these files need to be 
writable by the user Apache is running on. Additionally I've kept them 
"lfswww" writable so we can still modify them. ".htpasswd" also needs to be 
writable by httpd, so TWiki's register script can add new accounts there.

That was the way I found to match this requirement. If you guys have a better 

I think changing .htpasswd permissions to 660 is good enough, what do you
