GID of script is smaller than min_gid error

Last days I encountered the following error in one of my websites:

GID of script “/home/www/test.php” is smaller than min_gid

Here is how I fixed the error:

  • Login by SSH to your server
  • Open the directory /home/www/
  • Type:

chown username test.php
chgrp groupname test.php

Basically the error I encountered should mean that there is an error in the GID (group ID) and when I checked with SSH I noticed the group and the owner of the file was root, so I changed the owner and the group of the file with my user and groupname using the above commands and then all went fine.

I hope this will help others with the same error.
