It seems when the ownership is changed to apache the files read
apache:site_owner since I manage all the 15 WPs sites it is an easier
situation that the one you have to address. As noted the suPHP just
doesn't run consistent throughout the sites for me. In times past I changed
the ownership to apache and did the WP update. Having installed nearly
two dozen WP sites one would think I could have figured this out by now.
I pulled two WP sites up side-by-side from the command line and made
them both the same according to the one that was working but that
didn't help. I am still doing some research in the WP forums but they
point toward ownership and file permissions issues. I am running dir 755 and
files 644. Keep me posted if you find something and I will try it on my end.
